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

Fix 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 some annoying issues of Server DNS not found, ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED, Site cannot be reached err_connection_timed_out, took too long to respond, Fix “Aw, Snap!” page crashes and other page loading errors etc.

. DNS actually stands for Domain Name Servers which loads the web pages from the host (the one where web pages are stored in 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 a 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.


Hit Clear Host Cache Button

  1. Simply visit the URL ‘chrome://net-internals/#dns‘.
  2. Click on Clear Host Cache button next to Host resolver cache.
  3. You will notice the websites are working properly.

Solution 2: Change Protocol DNS Settings

DNS Server Change

  1. Search ‘ncpa.cpl‘ in Windows.
  2. Look for the option called Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
  3. Click on it and click on the properties button.
  4. Now manually use following DNS servers; Preferred DNS server as & Alternate DNS server as (Google’s public DNS) (Set IP as automatic)
  5. Restart the browser and check websites.

Solution 3: Disable DNS Prediction Services


Uncheck Prediction Services

  1. Go to settings of Chrome.
  2. Scroll down and click on Advanced settings.
  3. Here you will see an option of ‘Use Prediction Services to Load the Pages more Quickly’
  4. 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

    Why is it not working in my pc?

  2. Jacob says:

    Just a heads up:
    The URL mentioned (“chrome://net-incternals/#dns”) should actually be “chrome://net-internals/#dns”. A ‘c’ was inserted into “internals” for some reason.
