Also experiencing the same issue. Can’t access with my dev machine. Any other device works.

I would like to suggest following few steps to try and narrow down the issue:

  1. Check if DNS is set up correctly and your domain is pointing to your Droplet’s IP address
  2. Check if you have any firewalls enabled, and confirm that HTTP traffic (incoming TCP on port 80) is allowed
  3. Make sure your web server is running. Run this command to check if a process with the name apache is running: sudo ps wwaux | grep apache. Exchange apache with nginx or your webserver’s binary name if you are not using Apache
  4. Try a different network, the issue could be local
