It seems like after a reboot your network doesn’t start. I’ll recommend you to enter your droplet via the DigitalOcean console and try to restart/start your network:

service network start

This should bring back your droplet.

Hi @ashishsust,

It seems like your WebService - Nginx/Apache didn’t start. I’ll recommend sshing to the droplet

ssh root@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

Where your XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is your droplet’s IP.

Once inside try to start your WebService like so;

If Apache:

service apache2 start

If it’s Nginx:

service Nginx start
