Many of you might not have known what exact DNS is. DNS is the system behind the Internet, which will responsible and match requested domain names with correct IP addresses. When you are entering a domain name in your browser’s address bar, it will send a request to DNS servers to ask for the right IP address.
DNS servers look like the address book, which stored all domain names and its IP addresses. And these servers will respond and return to users the right information.
However, if somehow, these DNS servers can’t respond to your request or your request couldn’t be delivered to DNS servers. Then you aren’t able to access the Internet because all internet connections, including sending and receiving are based on DNS servers.
These DNS errors could be caused many reasons. But with three helpful methods below, you can resolve any DNS errors that may happen on your computer.
