DNS Caching: Troubleshooting

How Do I Flush My DNS Cache on Windows PC?

To help the Launch Process: Flushing the cache removes all the information stored in the cache, forcing the computer to find new DNS information.

Open your “Windows Command” prompt (see options below):
  • WinXP: Start, Run and then type “cmd” and press Enter.
  • Windows: Click “Start” and type the word “Command” in the Start search field. Right-click the command prompt icon and select the option to “Run as Administrator”.
In the open prompt, type:  ipconfig /flushdns

You should receive a message of your success as confirmation when the cache is cleared.
