Hello, @firegamer552x

Can you please verify that the droplet is online? You can check this in your DigitalOcean account, just navigate to the Droplets page and see if the status of the droplet is Active. You can also check if you can access the Droplet using the DigitalOcean console or try to perform a reboot.

For more information about the console you can check this tutorial:

As for the DNS issue, can you please confirm if you’re using DigitalOcean’s nameservers and also if you’ve pointed the A record of the domain name to the IP address of the droplet? Keep in mind that due to ISP DNS cache and some other factors the DNS will need few hours in order to fully update.
