I used this command instead of exit : shutdown -h now . Now my site is offline and when I type my IP and try to connect to it , it does not work. What to do ? How can I bring the site online ? Please help.

Login to the the DO control panel click the droplet you want to boot and power it on from there.
Thanks Allison. Is my IP and root password the log in details ?

The login details are for your DigitalOcean account, not the password for the VPS itself. You should see the power menu, it looks like:

Click boot.

In the future, you can use the command:

sudo reboot
