    Default [How to FIX]The Site Can't be reached/Server DNS could not be found

    this is my first time to actually encounter this problem....seriously....it happens to me when i tried accessing youtube site...then the site cant be reached...so i tried to access the other sites that i have been to and there were no problems at all..its just in that specific site that i cant access at all...so, i finally found a solution and it actually works lol.


    STEP BY STEP
    1st Step: Right click on the windows start icon --> click on Command Prompt ( Admin )
    2nd Step: In the window(command prompt) type the following ipconfig /flushdns [press enter]
    You should see .....Successfully flushed the DNS resolver cache
    3rd Step: Next type ... ipconfig /renew [press enter]
    4th Step: Next type ... ipconfig /registerdns [press enter]
    and try that specified (WEBSITE) again

    for example..my problem came from
    www(dot)youtube.com

    To offer a network engineer's explanation of why this happens, it's because the DNS servers that your ISP is providing to you are flaking out. Sadly, this is an all-too-common problem with some ISPs, especially in less-connected parts of the world.

    Often, the better fix that will last longer is to set your computer or router's DNS servers to ones that are more reliable overall, instead of using your ISP's provided ones.

    If you wanted to use Google's, for example, a walkthrough on how to change your computer to using theirs is listed below, and it takes about 5 minutes to do:

    I agree with LV. ISP-assigned DNS settings are very unreliable - to the point that both my home and business network routers have Google's DNS ingrained into them.
