Google Chrome clear/reset DNS Cache

It didn’t occur to me until recently, and its less likely anyone will really ever have a need for clearing the DNS Cache in Google Chrome. But if your like me and you just recently updated nameservers for your domain (maybe even more then once in a 24 hour period). Then you might notice despite all your attempts to clear the history, cookies, and all else. Even restarting your browser. Or even more extreme, flushing your OS’s DNS and your router’s (if you have a router). Despite all that the domain in question just fails to open in the browser. Well, today after a little digging I have found that Chrome has its own built in internal DNS Cache mechanism.\r\n\r\nThat said to access this built in DNS Cache to clear it out you need to access it like one of the many hidden gems Chrome or anything Google for that matter built in. You have to go to the following URL.\r\n\r\nchrome://net-internals/#dns\r\n\r\nOnce you’re in there all you need to do is look under the first table for a button that has text to the effect of “Clear host Cache”. Clear that, restart he browser and you should hopefully pending other upper level DNS / Hosting issues are blocking you, be able to finally access that site.
