How to clear DNS cache in Google Chrome browser?

Hello, I have been looking around to flush or clear the DNS cache of the chrome browser, with an easy way. As I have heard chrome has it's own DNS, which I would like to clear and test my website, so how I clear DNS in it.

You should clear your browser cache by navigating to "..." on top right of browser -> More Tools ->  Clear Browsing data and Check 'Empty the cache and image' and click on clear browsing data. 

You can review full article here: Clear Chrome browser cache

Once you are done with it, you can try to enter this in Chrome browser to clear DNS 'chrome://net-internals/#dns'

You should see output like below


Click on "Clear host cache".

Remove socket pools also on Chrome after flushing DNS, by entering below command:


There are also other DNS cache in your system, which you should remove/clear.

Windows using CMD:

ipconfig /flushdns

OS X pre-10.7 (before Lion):

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

OS X 10.7–10.9 (Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks):

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

OS X 10.10+ (Yosemite):

sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache

OS X 10.11, 10.12+ (El Capitan, Sierra):

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

Hope it helps.
