3.12. DNS error
Quite often, a situation arises when, after changing address records or NS domains or after registering it, when you try to open a site, an old page of your site or an error is displayed in the browser DNS:
Most often, this problem can be solved using:
Sometimes the problem can occur at the level of your ISP's servers, which have not yet been information updated... You can check this option:
- Having tried to open your site, for example, through onlineproxy.
- By executing the command ping.
If the IP address in the command output does not match current IP address server of your hosting account or is not given at all, which means that the theory about outdated information on the servers of the provider will be correct.
In this case, you can solve the problem, by setting public DNS CloudFlare / Google in your PC's network connection settings.
If you do not wish to change DNS-server of your network connection, you must specify current IP address server of your hosting account in the system file hosts... For this:
- Run notepad as an administrator.
- Open the file in notepad
c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts(when opening, the full path can be specified in the field "File name").
- On a new line, add an entry like this:In recording:
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXXsubstitute current IP address server of your hosting account.
example.comsubstitute your domain name.
