Ping has too many timeout

Hi @wahyucnugraha,

There are a lot of possibilities from your Droplet experiencing issues to your Network Connection being slow. What I’ll recommend checking is trying to use traceroute to your droplet’s IP address

traceroute YourDropletIP

If it reaches your droplet, it should be good.

Additionally, I’ll recommend trying to ping another IP/Domain.com from the same region as your current droplet. If you still experience these delays, I’ll recommend contacting your ISP about some Network connectivity.
