• What should we do if the DNS CASH doesn't update?

    • views 1137

    We moved on from one bad VPS hosting to another. NS-servers has changed. Now attendance is down, although it was previously 40k per day. Now, I can see the site, but many users complain they can`t see it. Developer said that I need to clean the DNS cache, but hosting support told us to wait until NS`will renew. Can I clean the cache by myself?

    If the move was less than four days ago, then it is nothing to worry about. The DNS-cache Update from Internet providers takes from a few minutes up to four days. You can`t upgrade the DNS cache by yourself. This is how DNS works.

    Unfortunately no. It is necessary to wait for an update (usually from 1 to 72 hours).
    If you mean the DNS users cache, you can`t clean it. Within 1-2 days after you change servers, the DNS cache will be completely updated. You can`t influence this process.
    Updating DNS zones doesn`t occur instantaneously, usually within a day. If the zone has been updated, but old links remain in your local DNS cache, (and you have Windows), you can accept this command on Windows terminal - ipconfig / flushdns
    No, you need to wait for the update records on the DNS-caching servers, it usually takes approximately 2 hours.
