This time we give a small âtrick youâ to force the cache dns or the new resolution dns of a domain, especially useful when it has been changed of supplier, migrated or changed of IP. Sometimes it happens that when we migrated our domain towards another supplier of hosting or changed it of servant or IP, we have problems to visualize it in the new site and our system continues showing previous host to us. In order to force the cache dns and to indicate to him to our computer that must refresh dns and that rereads the zones dns we can make the following thing:
For Windows in 7 (and Windows generally): we make click in the beginning (small ball of Windows in corner left inferior) > we looked for âto executeâ > we put âcmdâ without quotation marks and one that is opened to us the window of commandos we put âipconfig /flushdnsâ (without quotation marks)Â and clickamos âto enterâ. After this, we will have erased the cache dns of our operating system.
For MAC: it opensÂ to the âFinderâ > sails until âApplications/Utilities/Terminalâ and double beamÂ clickÂ in âthe Terminalâ application to execute it. That new window flushcache enters the dscacheutil commando âââ (without quotation marks), if you are usingÂ Mac OS XÂ 10,5 Leopard. And if you are usingÂ Mac OS XÂ 10,4 Tiger, the commando would be âlookupd â flushcacheâ (without quotation marks)â¦ and I broke dns erased! ; -).
As always, we hoped to have been of aid. Salu2!
