Who is managing DNS, registrar or host? Does your droplet have an FQDN, and if so, is that what you pointed the CNAME to? If it doesn't have an FQDN (and even if it does), you can instead create an A record and point that to the droplet's IP.

Roughly speaking, an A record will point to an IP, while a CNAME is an 'alias' to another domain.
