Chrome is the best browser when it comes to windows based systems.
But whenever it shows DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN or we can say DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN error, it makes us feel helpless.
Nothing works, the web page keeps loading and we keep losing our patience.
I suffered this problem.
And found the solution too.
Why DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error occurs in chrome?
The thing is simple.
You have an internet connection and obviously and Internet Service Provider i.e ISP too.
Sometimes the DNS server of your ISP works not as it should work and it misunderstand the web page that you are asking for.
For a time, when some web page were not working, I thought it's because they are banned in my country.
But then sometimes my own blog was not loading.
And I was like why my government banned my blog.Stupid I was 😛
It’s not the ban.It’s your ISP not responding to it.
So what do we do?
Let’s keep the ISP and change our DNS.
But who’s DNS?
The answer is Google’s DNS servers.
Yes, Google has fast ,working and Up almost every time DNS servers that works well as the solution to this problem.
Now it looks like a huge thing to setup DNS but it’s just as easy as commenting on this post in comment box.
