LAMP Stack DigitalOcean DNS Ubuntu 16.04

I have recently set up a new droplet with the standard Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP Stack preset of DO. I now want to access the standard page via browser and tried calling the IP-Address of my droplet. It loads indefinitely and does not return any page. Shouldn't this droplet work out of the box?

What am I missing? I have also configured DNS for my custom domain, but same problem there - so it seems the DNS is at least working. But I would already be far happier if the IP Address would work. Setting up the DNS correctly should be easy to do after that.

Thanks in advance!
