How to Flush DNS
We have moved the websites to a new server. If you encounter an issue, please try flushing the DNS first.
- In the taskbar search field, type : command
- Copy this command and paste it into the window that pops up: ipconfig /flushdns
- Press Enter
- You can close the command window when you get the success message
- Head back to app and test again.
- Run terminal.app using your preferred method. You can launch the app from Applications -> Utilities or press Command + Space to launch Spotlight and search for Terminal.
- Type in sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder and hit Return on your keyboard.
- Enter the administrator password for the account in question and hit Return.
- There is no notification when the process finishes. However, you can append another command to change that. If you want to hear an audio notification after the DNS flush is complete, type say some text after the first command. For example: sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder; say dns cleared successfully
