You’d need to describe the error first. If it’s a 404 (as you said), the problem is likely somewhere in your configuration.

  • Are you sure you pointed your domain to the right droplet?
  • Can you access the server via IP?
  • Where are the files for your webserver stored? Usually there’s a file called index.html, index.lighttpd.html, or something similar in that folder.
