This question was answered by @ryanpq:

First, I would make sure that the web server on your droplet is running by attempting to reach the IP address directly in your browser.

I would also recommend checking your web server’s log files:

For apache on ubuntu this would be in /var/log/apache2/ For nginx on ubuntu this would be /var/log/nginx/

If you can provide some additional details on what software you are running and any error messages being recorded we’ll best be able to help you resolve this.
