Apache WordPress DNS Firewall Configuration Management Ubuntu 16.04

I’m using 1GB Ubuntu 16.04 droplet to running my WordPress site. It was running fine till March 25th. But after this, it starts giving an error: “cURL error 28: Resolving timed out after 10524 milliseconds” with some of my plugins and also when I want to update any plugin. I have also contacted to the plugin author but they said it is a web host issue. So Please help me to solve this issue.

You’re having problem resolving the host, since you’re using Google DNS, which has problems in some regions.
