As we said at the beginning, the DNS server not responding problem can be overwhelming at first, but it is very easy to fix!
Check now the main resolutions:
clear your cache
It is in the DNS cache that all the IPs of the sites you visit are stored, and clearing it can be a good way to fix the problem, as an IP address that is out of date can lead to the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error.
To do this correctly, simply run the command prompt as a Windows admin, type “ipconfig/flushdns” and press Enter.
Alter the DNS server
Tried to clear your cache, but it didn’t work? It may be a good idea to change the DNS server.
To escape this error, many people end up choosing to use Google DNS , because, in addition to a better connection, it offers more stability and speed .
You can make this change by following the step-by-step below:
Go to Your Control Panel and Open the “Network and Sharing Center”.
On the left side, select the “Alter adapter settings” option .
With the right mouse button, click on the connection used and select “Properties” .
Now, select “IP Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and then click “Properties” .
In this part, you will find two blank fields. It is in those fields where you can define which servers are preferred and the alternative of your PC. The Board Members Email List addresses used by Google are 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206, and openDNS 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
Select OK and exit.
Disable your antivirus and VPN
Although very efficient, the combination of antivirus and VPN can interfere with access to some sites. So if you are facing DNS server not responding error, try disabling it first.
To disable VPN, follow the step by step:
Go to your Control Panel;
Select “Network and Internet” and then “Network Connections” .
Soon, you will come across the list of all the connections you have.
Choose which VPN you want to disable.
Select “Alter settings for this connection.”
After that, select the “Network” tab at the top of the window and then click the Uninstall button.
Now just restart your computer.
Reset Chrome Flags
Some Google Chrome features may be buggy when running as some are in the testing phase and are available to users around the world. This can also cause DNS server errors.
Try resetting your browser settings by typing “chrome://flags/” in the navigation bar. This may make the error go away and you can return to normal browsing.
