Domain name not getting connected to droplet but ip with port number does

Hi, I am unable to get my domain name connected to my droplet which is hosting an angular 2 application. I am able to ping the domain name and see the reply with proper ip address in it. I am also able to open the application with ip address like http://xxx.xxx.xx.x:8080 but trying with my domain name like http://mydomain.com returns error -

This site can’t be reached
refused to connect.

Any help is much appreciated.

Can you use the following command to start the angular app?

ng serve --host mydomain.com --port 80

This will start your app on the droplet on port 80. It will also start with the correct hostname information too.

Supply the port with your domain. http://mydomain.com:8080

without specifying the port, your browser will try to connect to port 80

Used --disable-host-check with ng serve.
