How to clear the local DNS cache in Windows

If you’ve just changed your site’s nameservers and need to clear your local DNS cache in Windows to check whether the domain configuration changes have propagated through then please follow these simple steps:

Windows 7:

  • Open the Start menu
  • Click on Run
  • Type cmd and press enter
  • In the Command Prompt type: ipconfig /flushdns and press the Enter key
  • Close the Command Prompt

Windows 810:

  • Press Win+X on your keyboard in order to open the WinX Menu
  • Right-click the Command Prompt and select ‘Run as Administrator‘ from the context menu
  • Type in the following command: ipconfig /flushdns and press the Enter key

We also recommend that you clear your browser cache too as this will help to make sure that you’re not viewing a cached version of the website you want to view
