The first possibility is the propagation of DNS. DNS can take up to 48 hours to propagate. That’s the most common thing people think it’s an issue but they just have to wait. Anyway, if you’ve passed these 48 hours let’s go to the next one.
The second possibility is for you to not have added the proper Nameservers or added your domain. In order to manage your DNS with DigitalOcean, you need to change your Nameservers of your domain with your registrar(where you registered the droplet). Once you change the Nameservers to
