Some basic DNS errors include SNAME Error, caused due to invalid IP addresses and can be resolved by validating the IP address. DNS Error caused because of incomplete website setup is the ‘No Registered Records’, which is resolved by the Clients Database Management. Sometimes, you get redirected to a different site that you may not know about, thus forcing you to either visit that site or shut down the search.

So, if you are also being harassed by the DNS error, try some of the following techniques to get freed from it.

Firstly try resetting the DNS Settings by:

  1. Press ‘Enter’ after typing ‘cmd.exe’.
  2. Pressing Windows + R to open ‘Command Prompt’
  3. Now type the following commands, one by one:

Ipconfig/flushdns> Enter

ipconfig /registerdns> Enter

ipconfig /release > Enter

ipconfig /renew > Enter

netshwinsock reset > Enter

Now restart the computer and check if the problem persists.

Secondly, you can disconnect the router of all the connections, let it be in that condition for like a minute or so, then plug it again, switch it on and then check.

If the problem stays, deactivate the Firewall, and see if the error persists.
