The web console is intended to access your droplet in a case of emergency in order to sort out the issue. Most users manage their DigitalOcean Droplets using SSH, PuTTY, or a control panel they’ve installed themselves. However, changes to your network or service configuration files could leave you unable to log in remotely using these methods.
The Droplet console provides out-of-band access and is available regardless of your network settings. It emulates the access you would have if you were sitting down with a keyboard and monitor attached to the actual server. You can use this feature to log in and revert bad settings to regain normal access.
I will highly recommend to use a ssh-client in order to access and manage your droplet.
You can also check our docs on How to Connect to Droplets with SSH:
There are two options at the bottom of the doc:
Connect with OpenSSH
Connect with PuTTY
Hope that this helps!
