I am new to Digitalocean and just set up my first test droplet to try to get it up and running. I created a simple html page that simply displays the text “TEST”. If I type in the IP address (220.127.116.11) the test page is displayed, but if I type in the web address (www.giovas-is-a-geek.com or http://giovas-is-a-geek.com) I get a “connection refused” error. I confirmed that my DNS entries have propagated and I have tried connecting from 3 different networks to ensure something isn’t being blocked. I currently don’t have a firewall enabled.
Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can check?
