Hello @pjha , I also have the same problem with my droplet. I have followed all the steps that @romeobraindead and @thepouringarts did.

Can you suggest, how to make it permanent. I need that it work please.

Hey there!

The resolvers are having issues. The resolvers are specified in the /etc/resolv.conf file and are set based on the network configuration scripts on the Droplet. You can try rebooting the Droplet once and if the issue still persists, you can try to manually specifying nameserver IP entries in the /etc/resolv.conf file to any of the following for testing. the format looks like this:

nameserver IP.AD.DR.ESS

Google public name servers: nameserver 8.8.8.8 nameserver 8.8.4.4

OpenDNS nameserver 208.67.222.222 nameserver 208.67.220.220

Let me know how it goes.
