Google Chrome is a browser that is robust enough the greater good. It is fire the reader to many of us. Safer than Internet Explorer and Firefox thinner than there is much to say about this browser. That does not mean it is completely without problems.

A problem common in WordPress users is a persistent error, dns probe error nxdomain complete. The lack of information regarding managed hosting VPS Wordpress, are in the selection of hosting providers ineffective for lack of support system could be one reason.

As the name suggests, it is a DNS error. DNS stands for Domain Name Service and is the technology that translates IP addresses to servers in the URL that we enter into the browser.

The error manifests itself as a gray screen with "This page is not available" and "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN" below. The reason may be the browser or computer, but we can fix both.

First, let's start with the simple things. First, try restarting your computer and try again. This often treat the problem without your intervention. If it does not, try restarting your modem or router and try again.

If none of these steps work, we start the DNS service in Windows, then proceed to reset Winsock.

In the Windows Search box (Cortana), type 'services.msc'.
Right-click the "DNS Client" service and click Restart.
Allow Service to restart and continue to run and retest.

If this does not work, try resetting the winsock directory that is part of the Windows network.

  • Open a command prompt as an administrator.
  • Type 'catalog netsh winsock reset "and press Enter.
  • Restart your computer and try again.

If you still see probe dns finished NXDomain errors in Google Chrome, we'll have to play with your network card.

  • Open a command prompt as an administrator.
  • Type "ipconfig / flushdns" and press Enter.
  • Go to Settings and Network and Internet
  • Select Change adapter options.
  • Select Internet Protocol Version 4 in the new window.
  • Change "Obtain DNS server address automatically" to "Use the following DNS server address.
  • Enter and in server areas.
  • Click OK and select Close.

Test your new settings by closing your browser, reopen it, and browsing some sites.
This requires that your DNS server as your default provider offers own Google DNS servers. Not only should this patch "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN 'mistakes, but they are often faster than most Internet service providers use. In addition, Google own DNS servers are more secure and robust than most Internet service providers, making them more suitable for use.
