It would be very rare that your IP was blocked at the DigitalOcean level. This is more likely an issue on your Droplet itself. When debugging an issue like this the first thing to do is to check the the log files for any error messages that could help you understand the problem better. In this case, you can find the VSFTPD log file at /var/log/vsftpd.log
