This question was answered by @mnordhoff:

Could you show us what DNS records you’ve created in the DigitalOcean control panel? As far as i can tell, everything is set up correctly, but you in fact have no A or AAAA records for the name, so it is not possible to ping what does not exist.

If nothing else is wrong, you just need to create one or two records, and it should start working almost immediately.
