Block default Apache page on Ubuntu 14.04?

I have a few web sites running on the same IP in my droplet and just noticed that if I access droplet’s IP in the browser, it loads the default Apache page for Ubuntu 14.04.

Is there a way to turn prevent this default Apache page from loading?

Disable the default apache site using this command:

a2dissite 000-default.conf

Hope this helps.
