Fix – Site Can’t be Reached: Server DNS Address Could not be Found

Here are few fixes to solve the problem of server DNS could not be found in your Chrome Browser. Also, fix ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED and Site can't be reached.

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.
