How to flush the DNS cache

After you change the nameservers for your site, you will want to clear the DNS cache.

Notice that clearing the Windows OS/Chrome cache after you’ve changed the nameservers for your site, doesn’t guarantee that your site will load from the new server. You will need to wait for the new nameservers to propagate to the nodes near your location.

For Windows OS:

Search Windows for “cmd” (Command Prompt). In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig /flushdns

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]
(c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Max>ipconfig /flushdns

Windows IP Configuration

Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

C:\Users\Max>
Windows Command Prompt
Windows Command Prompt

If you are using a recent version of Windows – like Windows 10 – you can also use the Windows PowerShell. Use the same command ipconfig /flusdns :

Windows PowerShell

PS C:\Users\Max> ipconfig /flushdns

Windows IP Configuration

Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
PS C:\Users\Max>
Windows PowerShell
Windows PowerShell

Some browsers keep a DNS cache which is independent from the one used by the OS. For example, in Google Chrome, navigate to chrome://net-internals/#dns and click the “Clear host cache” button.

Google Chrome Clear host cache
Google Chrome Clear host cache

You can also clear the DNS cache for your domain at the Google Flush Cache
