Help with initial DNS IP address set up on Windows 10

Apache DNS Initial Server Setup DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04

I have successfully created my droplet and have installed Ubuntu 16.04 with Putty on my machine that's running Windows 10. When I set up LAMP successfully on the console, the installation did not give me any errors in the console installation. However, when I try and access my IP address for my droplet on the address bar which is supposed to give me the apache default page, I get a "This site can’t be reached 206.189.167.108 took too long to respond." message. I'm thinking Windows 10 is blocking the IP address or a port is being blocked.

I've temporarily shut off the Windows 10 firewall but that hasn't resolved the issue.

Hey friend,

It seems that 206.189.167.108 is not responding to ping. I would propose that it's network settings may have been damaged somewhere along the way. I posted this a bit ago, it may offer some insight. At the very least, it will give you a path to double check settings and then tell you what we may need to investigate further:
