I guess if I install dns server (in debian 7) and get a domain, I could do it...
You could utilize any number of free domain name services ( or and point the free domain name to your DO IP.
I pointed a domain using the DO Nameservers in my registrar and the control panel in Digital Ocean to add the domain to the vps.
Your domain is pointing to your droplet properly. Is it not working for you?
