Clear my DNS cache?


#1

I just transferred over to a PS and my site has been DOWN ever since. I’m not getting clear direction or help!

I was told to “clear my DNS cache” - I have no idea how to do this or what it even means, unfortunately. If someone can help me I would really appreciate it as my site is still down and it’s my busiest time of week. I’m losing dollars as I type!!

Depends what operating system you’re using but it’s most commonly flushed during reboots. If you’re using Windoze you can use the ipconfig command in a console window.

Start > Run then type cmd and hit Enter.

In console type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter

Are you sure it’s a DNS issue? Are you the only one who cannot view the site?

Thanks for the reply! My site was completely down. Turns out when I was moved to my VPS the database wasn’t properly attached and it wasn’t the DNS. :slight_smile:
