How to Flush DNS
Introduction to Flushing your DNS
Are you receiving a lot of "Page Not Found" errors and you know the page should be there? Sometimes you need to clear out your cache on your computer. Flushing the DNS will permit your computer to receive new data by flushing out the old data that is causing you problems.
How Can this Help Me?
DNS is an acronym for the Domain Name System. The memory of all the DNS lookups which your computer has performed is called the ‘DNS cache’. Sometimes, for various reasons, the cache becomes corrupt or out of date. The most common is that you are unable to access some websites in your browser. When this happens, you might receive an error message when you know the website is there on the internet.
That’s when flushing the DNS cache can sometimes help resolve the issue.
