Flushing DNS
Last Updated: Aug 28, 2012 04:36PM PDT

Often times after a DNS issue you will need to do what's called flushing your DNS.  What happens is that Windows will cache, or hold onto, a DNS when you visit a site.  If you visit a site with a bad DNS often times you will have that bad DNS stuck in your computer.  To fix this simply perform the following steps:


Close out your web browser


Click on your start button


Click run


Type cmd - this will bring up a black box and a cursor


Type ipconfig /flushdns then wait for it to finish


Close the box and reopen your browser
