In cloud hosting, the public IP address will be assigned to your server upon creating a new instance. In this case, you may skip this section.

But, if you are installing an Ubuntu server in your office or home, then, you may want to configure the server IP address and DNS.

Here's how you configure it

During the installation, I chose the DHCP option to configure the server IP address. After installation is completed, assign a static IP address.

Starting from Ubuntu version 16.04, you may use netplan to handle the network configuration.
