Isn’t it irritating when you’re Googling something important (like cat videos) and your browser becomes unbearingly slow? Well, if you checked the internet connection and it seems like that’s not the culprit, it may be time to consider flushing your Domain Name System (DNS) cache!
The more information that you have saved in the cache, the slower your computer will be browsing the web. Deleting the browser cache data helps to troubleshoot these issues, and helps decrease the load time of web pages.
This script clears the DNS cache. Flushing the DNS cache will erase any IP addresses or other records from your cache.
By flushing the DNS cache, you may fix hostname and server lookup issues, but please bear in mind it might not solve all connectivity issues.
