Why am i getting "Welcome to nginx! further configuration is required" when I type instead of just

So i am hosting two seperate domains on the same droplet by utlizing nginx and getting this error. Cant seem to figure out why as I have my other site set up identically and both and work fine.

When I run whois I get absolutely no results. Totally confused if someone could explain what is going on it would be much appreciated!
