How do I flush my local DNS cache?

Flushing the DNS cache on your computer

These instructions will help you clear DNS cache (if needed). If you are connecting through a router, you will likely need to reset the router to clear DNS cache on it.

To flush DNS cache in Microsoft Windows

  1. Click on Start->Run
  2. type:
ipconfig /flushdns
Your DNS cache has been flushed.
Note
If you cannot find how to do the above, try this FlushDNS.bat script.

To flush the DNS cache in Mac OS X:

in your terminal, type:
# dscacheutil -flushcache
on older versions of OS X, type:
# lookupd -flushcache
Your DNS cache has been flushed.

To flush the DNS cache in Linux

in your terminal, type:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart
or
# service nscd restart
Your DNS cache has been flushed.
Please note, many distributions do not cache DNS, so if nscd is not installed on your distro, this is not needed.
