How to restart DNS?
You can restart your dns by using the ipconfig command. The ipconfig command re-connects to the server and determines if it’s address is still correct. If not, then it updates with a new IP address. To use this command, open up Command Prompt on Windows or Terminal on Mac and type in “ipconfig/flushdns and press ENTER”.
What is a DNS?
A DNS is a Domain Name System. It’s the part of your computer that tells you what site to go where on the internet, or which IP address goes with which domain name. For example: google.com refers to Google servers by an IP address (173.194-226-34.qwestoffice). The dns will translate that into the IP address.
The Domain Name System (DNS) acts like a phone book: when you type in “google.com” into your browser or search bar, this sends an inquiry that goes through several servers until it gets to the address of Google’s servers (173.194-226-34.qwestoffice). Your computer follows this pointer and retrieves the corresponding IP address, which you can then use for your internet connection.
If you restart your dns, it will connect to a new server and update with whatever is necessary for that ip address. This is usually faster than waiting on Comcast or Time Warner to change whatever they changed in their systems (which happens every now and then)..
Restarting DNS can also be helpful if you are having trouble connecting to a specific website. If you still cannot get onto that site after restarting the DNS, try using another DNS server (such as Google Public DNS).
What are the benefits of restarting DNS?
There are a number of benefits to restarting the DNS in your device. The most obvious is that it may help you get onto a website or server which has been blocked, or give you faster access to specific web pages when compared with other devices on the internet. If you find yourself having slow loading speeds while browsing websites and have already restarted your devices and restarted your internet, then it might be time to reset DNS for faster browsing.
When should I use flush DNS?
Flushing the DNS will clear any records of web pages you have previously visited. This means that your browser will not be able to show you history or connect to sites that are stored in its cache. If this is what you want, then it can help reduce browsing speeds by preventing websites from loading quicker than they need to do via their own server. It can also help if you want to clear your browsing history and start again from scratch or have a friend visit the same site at the same time as you do in order to test your internet speed.
How often should I flush DNS?
You don’t need to flush every DNS on a regular basis unless it’s been mentioned to you by the company that provides your internet. If there is a need to flush DNS at least once per day, then it can help keep an eye on any suspicious activity which could be linked with malware, phishing, or viruses in general.
