What is my external URL? This is what they gave me. I can putty into 22.214.171.124 and vi a little helloworld index.html file.
chris2f4fab5113 username (their choice) Your new Droplet is all set to go! You can access it using the following credentials: Public Network IP ADDRESS:
Droplet Name: CJC IP Address: 126.96.36.199
somewhere in the process of establishing the droplet, I needed to enter a “web” name so I used CJCdroplet1.com
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://188.8.131.52/ “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?
