SSH/HTTP: Temporary failure in name resolution/ERR Name Not Resolved when accessing droplet

When accessing my droplet (via SSH or HTTP by domain name) I receive errors regarding failures in name resolution. I have to retry multiple times for my requests to go through.

SSH: ssh: Could not resolve hostname Temporary failure in name resolution
HTTP: Err Name Not Resolved (apache2 web server)

I don’t see anything wrong with my domain or DNS settings. I use namecheap name servers.

Any help is appreciated.
