Solved DNS Error

Technical Details

Forum version : #phpBB3
Position : Founder
Concerned browser(s) : Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari

Who the problem concerns : A few members
When the problem appeared : Today
Forum link : http://ardentartforum.com

Description of problem

Hello! So, earlier today, some (roughly 15) of my members messaged me on skype/Facebook/etc saying that they were receiving the error above. I asked them to try difference browsers, which they all did, and it still resulted in the same thing. The rest of my members are doing perfectly fine, as if any other day, going to the forum.
How can I fix this?

Then just write ipconfig /flushdns and enter.

Did you purchase the domain name through Forumotion?

We've released a patch that should fix this problem but you imperatively need to clear your DNS cache in your command prompt.

Start >>clicking All Programs >> clicking Accessories >> clicking Command Prompt.

(If you have windows 10 just do a right click on the start button and choose the command prompt in the pannel. )

Then just write ipconfig /flushdns and enter.

Tell me if it is working ! Thanks !
