**Hi there.

I recently signed up to Digital ocean and installed a ghost one-click droplet to create a professional blog.

Digital ocean issued me an IP address - http://188.166.159.95 - but this doesn’t work, it says to me that this site cannot be reached.

firewalls are switched off on my mac, so this should allow me to access connections like this.

Am I doing something wrong

Appreciate the help,

Faizal

Hi Faizal,

Just wanted to let you know that I can see your private site login in case you didn’t already know that. It’s not setup with SSL, so I’m not that is what you see. Most browsers will warn you that the connection is not private.

After you get going, you will need to setup SSL so normal humans can get to your site.

Best!
