A lot of websites on Google Chrome seem to be displaying the error of ‘DNS Server Not Responding’. These sites used to work fine earlier but suddenly; I am seeing only an error page. How can this issue be fixed? (I am using Windows 10)

DNS Server Not Responding

DNS is a server that translates website’s addresses so that your browser can securely connect to them. You encounter DNS error when the server has issues, or the addresses become out of date. Changing the DNS address and opting for an open DNS will change it.

Here is how:

1. Click on the Start Button and then to Settings.

2. In Settings, click on ‘Network and Internet’.

3. In ‘Network and Internet’, go to ‘Change adapter settings’ under ‘Change your Network Settings’.

4. Right click on the network adapter that you are using and select ‘Properties’.

5. In the dialog box, scroll and find ‘Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)’ and double click on it.

6. In the DNS section, select the button ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in 8.8.8.8 under ‘Preferred DNS server’. Check the box ‘Validate settings upon exit’ and click OK.

7. Try reloading the webpages now, they should be working fine!
