    Hello Rachel S,

    The Domain Name System (DNS) is used to locate the IP address of a specific website domain name. It creates web browsing possible, specifically with over a billion websites on the Internet.

    However, there might be circumstances when the system cannot locate the IP address, resulting in an ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED DNS error. There are several possible causes, but the "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" error occurs when a browser can't locate the IP address that hosts the domain name you wish to visit. Here are some possible causes for the error to occur,
    • Cached data
    • Network settings
    • Enabled DNSSEC
    • Antivirus software misconfiguration or Firewall.
    • Browser settings.

    Thus, In order to fix the error, you can follow the steps below,

    Flush DNS Cache from Device:
    • Firstly, use the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog.
    • Now, type cmd to open Command Prompt.
    • Then, type the following commands and press Enter,
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    ipconfig /renew
    ipconfig /release
    • Lastly, It automatically clears your DNS cache files and resets the DNS resolver cache.
    Clear Host Cache from Google Chrome Browser:
    • Firstly, open Google Chrome, type chrome://net-internals/#dns on the browser's search bar, and press Enter.
    • Lastly, click on Clear host cache.
    Reset your Windows Firewall and DNS Server Addresses:
    • Firstly, press the Windows + R keys to launch the Run dialog.
    • Then, type firewall.cpl and click on the OK button.
    • Now, click on the Restore defaults option in the left-side menu.
    • Lastly, click the Restore defaults button to reset your firewall's original settings.
    • Firstly, open the Control Panel.
    • Then, navigate to Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
    • Now, click on Change Adapter Settings.
    • Next, right-click the network adapter you use to connect to the Internet, then select Properties.
    • Then, double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6).
    • Lastly, enter the public DNS server address for the preferred and alternate DNS servers.

    However, If the issue persists, you can try the below ways to fix the "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" error.
    1. Reset the Winsock catalog
    2. Scan your computer for malware
    3. Temporarily disable your Antivirus.
    I hope the ways mentioned above help you to resolve the DNS "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" error.
