Please read full 2019 guide how to fix DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN



The DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN problem was started due to incompatibility of IP addresses with computer DNS. To be more technical, DNS converts all messages from a domain into a form of IP address. The real problem arises when someone enters a URL in their browser; it's up to DNS to find a server with the appropriate server IP address. While in the general case, the search process is directed to the target site, but if the DNS fails, this will produce an error. Changing DNS server to Google DNS or OpenDNS , or remove all cookies and cached files on your browser will help to resolve this issue immediately. Like any other error, there are several ways you can solve these problems by yourself.


Release or Renew Your IP Address
Change DNS server
Restart DNS Client service
Reset hosts file
Reset Chrome Flags
Reset Winsock program
