New user: What is my web url? Unable to find my index.html.

Your new Droplet is all set to go! You can access it using the following credentials:
Droplet Name: CJC
IP Address: 184.108.40.206
somewhere in the process of establishing the droplet, I needed to enter a “web” name so I used
It also wanted a pre-registered domain name associated with this droplet:
www.prosperityforamericans.org (which I registered at domaindiscover.com a year ago)
I also put the three DigitalOcean DNS lookups in the domaindiscover settings
I cannot get anything to come up in the browser.
http://220.127.116.11/ “unable to connect”
http://www.prosperityforamericans.org/ “this webpage is unavailable”
CJCdroplet1.com “this webpage is unavailable”
https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets/8368745/console shows a black unix command panel that I can use same as with putty.
Can you help me figure out what name to use in the browser to show my index.html helloworld file?
