Hey there,

The site I’m about to create is facing an error “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN”

I’ve tried & tested everything since yesterday but nothing seems to work. I also tried to change the DNS through the Network & Sharing center but no help.

I already found few similar threads here but they didn’t seem to help me out in any way. That’s why I am creating & posting a new thread.

Any thing would help.

Many thanks


Hlo, alexwilliams I would suggest you Execute commands in Command Prompt and if you don’t know how to do it then follow these steps:

  1. Type cmd and Choose Run as administrator.
  2. Now, enter these commands one by one
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /all
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /renew
    netsh int ip set dns
    netsh winsock reset
  3. After executing these commands restart your computer.

I hope this method will help you to resolve this issue. Be sure to run these commands one by one.


Hi Alex,

The error mostly arises due to the incorrect or mis-configuration of the DNS Settings of your Internet Network. You can easily fix this error using this tutorial post. Alternatively, you can also refer to YouTube videos for a step-by-step guide.

Don’t worry, it is a common error.


Thanks a lot. It worked for me.


Thanks for the help, however, I fixed this issue recently.
