When moving your website to another host, it’s frustrating having to wait for the DNS changes to take effect on your computer. I knew there had to be a faster way to get it done, and after some searching across the web, I found these instructions:
Once your name servers are updated with your registrar, it may take up to 12 hours for the process to complete. You can speed up the process of propagation for your local network by flushing your DNS cache.
Do the following:
- In windows click START > RUN and type in “cmd” (a command window will open)
- Type in “ipconfig /flushdns” and press “Return/Enter”
You will see:
Windows IP Configuration Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
In most cases, your site will begin to work immediately from the new host. Hope this helps!
