When a site moves host, or DNS settings change for whatever other reason, it can often take a little while for those changed settings to proliferate around the internet. You CAN speed it up on your individual computer, however, by flushing its DNS Resolver Cache.
- First, click the Start Menu, then click the search bar to search for something (pictured below)
- Type “cmd.exe” into the search field, then click the result that appears. You will then be taken to the “command line”, which looks like good ol’ MS-DOS (pictured below)
- You’ll need to type a command: “ipconfig /flushdns” (without the quotes)
- Finally, press enter. A message should appear - “Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache”. If it does, you’re done! It should take effect right away, so you should now be able to access the site's new location.
If you get an error message of some kind – “invalid command”, or similar – then it means you’ve mistyped the command.
