Random timeout connection

Networking Ubuntu 16.04

Hello guys,
on my droplet with Ubuntu Server 16.04 i have problems with connectivity.
I receive the connection timeout error randomly.
For example, if I run the command $ host -v www.google.com I get this:

# host -v www.google.com
Trying "www.google.com"
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

If I do it again, I receive this:

# host -v www.google.com
Trying "www.google.com"

I can not understand what causes this behavior.
Also to log in with ssh to the droplet I have to do 3 or more attempts before succeeding, i hope you can help me.
Thank you and sorry for the bad english.
