This is only a bad formulation of message. It’s static message that you can see in /var/www/html/index.html.
Open it if editor you like, e.g.:

  • nano /var/www/html/index.html

Observe it and you will notice that message there.
If you change that file to:

Sample index.html
<p>Hello World!</p>

Save it and exit, go to Droplet and you shall see Hello World!

For changing files you will need to SSH and you can learn more about it here.
