It sounds to me like your Domain is pointing to another Server. You’ll need to point the Domain to your droplet. As such, you’ll need to update your DNS settings. Check the following Docs:

Hi there,

Would you mind confirming which tutorial did you follow exactly?

Also, after following the tutorial in question, did you also configure your DNS settings to point your A record to the Droplet’s IP address?

Keep in mind that once you make a DNS change, it can take up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new changes.
