Hi,

What is the way to clear the local DNS cache in windows?

Also is it necessary to clear up my browser's cache as well when flushing the local DNS cache in windows?

To clear DNS cache, follow these steps:

1. Click Start
2. Go to RUN
3. On the pop-up box, type "cmd"
4. On the command prompt window, type "ipconfige/flushdns"
5. It would say "Successfully flushed DNS", when done correctly.

Yes, you should also clear you browser's cache and make sure to reboot your computer.

Hi Austin,

To perform the operation of flush DNS, you can use the method given above, of going through the command prompt commands.

Alternatively, the easier way is to download a software and assigning this job to it. I've found a software for this very purpose here.

Hope this helps!
