How to resolve ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED?

ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED is a standard error that occurs when your web browser cannot resolve the domain name of the website you are trying to access. Several issues, including incorrect DNS settings, network connectivity issues, or problems with the website itself can cause this.

Following are some steps you can take to resolve ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error:

Ensure your internet connection is stable and working properly: Try connecting to a wired network if you are using Wi-Fi to determine if the problem is with your Wi-Fi.

Clear your DNS cache: Your DNS cache stores information about recently visited websites. You may be able to resolve the issue by clearing your DNS cache. You can clear your DNS cache by opening the Command Prompt and typing the following command: ipconfig /flushdns

Check your DNS settings: Ensure that your DNS settings are configured correctly. If you use a custom DNS server, try switching to your ISP's DNS server to see if that resolves the issue.

Disable any proxy servers: If you use a proxy server, try disabling it to see if it resolves the issue.

Temporarily disable your antivirus software and Firewall: Some antivirus software and firewall may interfere with your internet connection. Try temporarily disabling your antivirus software and firewall to see if that resolves the issue.

Disable DNSSEC: You can also check the domain on WHOIS to see if DNSSEC is enabled if all methods above do not work. This is an additional layer of security that uses cryptographic signatures. Despite protecting the DNS records from unauthorized users, it can also prevent the domain from propagating correctly, causing the error.

That's all.
