This question is a bit confusing.

I'm able to perform a DNS lookup on, then a reverse DNS lookup on the resulting IP address and that works.

The hostname of your droplet doesn't matter all that much; it's simply the internal name of your droplet and how it will be accessed on the droplet's internal network...

Which tutorials are you using? What exactly are you trying to do?
