One of the most common types of errors in Google Chrome is the DNS error and today we would be looking into the procedure which you can opt for solving the DNS errors. If the DNS error occurs you would not be able to surf most of the websites and this would entirely make you disconnected from your online presence.
Detection of the error:
This error often occurs when you get the message “this link appears to be broken”. This leads to the page being not loaded and just this error would appear across the page. No matter how many times you refresh you would never be able to access the website. The detection of the error can help you in solving half the problem as now you just need to look into the proper ways in which other people have solved this problem and you would be able to find these details in our article quite easily.
This is often due to the DNS error in Google Chrome. DNS errors normally occur when you’re using chrome for the extended period of time and when you’re browsing quite heavily throughout the day.
This error is not just exclusive to chrome but it can also occur in browsers like Firefox and Safari as well. When this error occurs, until and unless you fix this error, you would not be able to opt for normal browsing and therefore it is important to find the cause of the error and to solve the error once and for all.
Most of the users confuse this error with thinking that the website is down but if you check the website independently through third-party services, you would realise that the website is fine and this is actually an error due to the DNS problems in Google Chrome. There are a lot of other Chrome errors too such as err_name_not_resolved which can be resolved easily.
We have highlighted the steps below which would help you in solving this DNS error.
1. You need to open the Google Chrome browser.
2. You have to click on the wrench icon and open the options menu.
3. You have to click the options field and you have to select the option “under the hood” or “more options” depending on the version of Google Chrome which you are using.
4. In this, you have to disable the option “use DNS prefetching to improve page load performance”. When you disable this option, in almost all of the cases, the DNS errors would go away.
You need to just restart the chrome browser and you would be able to easily surf the pages without any DNS error.
As you can see, the solution to the problem of DNS error is pretty simple but the problem is that most of the people do not recognise that this is not a problem with the website or with your computer but this is a problem with your browser and therefore you need to solve this DNS proper problem in order to ensure that you are able to surf the websites quite easily again.
