How to DNS IP refresh

Hi,

I have a website - which was on an old server and the app code was old. So I updated the app code but I didn’t update the Ubuntu server - I just created a new server - which has a new IP.
Then I came to Cloudflare and under the DNS - I put the new IP for the new server.

The issue is that the website is not working anymore. I read that it might take 24h or even 72h until it starts working with the new IP?

Is there a way to ask for a DNS reindex? This is what Bard keeps telling me to hit the refresh DNS button but I don’t have something like that in my DNS section.

I am not even sure I am doing things right - is this the correct way to switch IPs?
How long will it take? I am worried about my website being down.
And can I do anything to make it reindex faster?

What is the website?

The website name is roofing-area-calculator.com
The old IP was 134.209.184.255
New IP is 142.93.176.222

Your origin is not accepting HTTPS connections on port 443. HTTP on port 80 is working. As a result, through Cloudflare HTTP is working but HTTPS is not.

curl -I https://142.93.176.222 -H "Host:roofing-area-calculator.com"
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 142.93.176.222 port 443 after 73 ms: Connection refused

curl -I http://142.93.176.222 -H "Host:roofing-area-calculator.com"
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
