Many a time you may face an annoying issue of ‘Server DNS not found’ error in your chrome browser. DNS actually stands for Domain Name Servers which loads the web pages from the host (the one where web pages are stored on the cloud). If you have a slow internet connectivity or due to some other issues your browser may show up an error and may not be able to connect to the host. This can happen even if you have a very good internet connectivity.
Today I have come up with couple of fix to solve the issue.
Solution 1: Clear DNS Cache of Google Chrome
This is one of the easiest and most useful fixes to stop the issue of DNS servers.
- Simply visit the URL ‘chrome://net-incternals/#dns‘.
- Click on Clear Host Cache button next to Host resolver cache.
- You will notice the websites are working properly.
Solution 2: Change Protocol DNS Settings
- Search ‘ncpa.cpl‘ in Windows.
- Look for the option called Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
- Click on it and click on the properties button.
- Now manually use following DNS servers; Preferred DNS server as 126.96.36.199 & Alternate DNS server as 188.8.131.52 (Google’s public DNS) (Set IP as automatic)
- Restart the browser and check websites.
Solution 3: Disable DNS Prediction Services
- Go to settings of Chrome.
- Scroll down and click on Advanced settings.
- Here you will see an option of ‘Use Prediction Services to Load the Pages more Quickly’
- Simply uncheck the box and restart the browser.
Solution 4: Try resetting TCP/IP
Run the following commands in this order in the Command Prompt (to run each command, press ENTER after typing it):
ipconfig /release ipconfig /all ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /renew netsh int ip set dns netsh winsock reset
