How to Flush DNS in Microsoft Windows ?

Post by AdamJanko » Wed Mar 05, 2014 2:01 pm

Hello,

Now in Windows, you can use the command ipconfig /flushdns to flush the DNS resolver cache.
Open the command prompt and type the following:
ipconfig /flushdns

It will show you the following output:

C:>ipconfig /flushdns
Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

Thank you.

This is actually useful if you have a DNS issue like if a domain just changed IPs and the TTL is set to 1 week for example. That has surpassed the propagation time.
Data back up is a must. Image
