DNS stands for Domain Name Service, and it helps in accessing various
websites on the Internet. An error regarding the DNS for any particular
website usually implies the lack of an active Internet connection. The
purpose of DNS is to simply translate the address that a user types on
the web browser from the human language into the computer language.
DNS is used to resolve names to numerical IP addresses, which is needed to route traffic onto the Internet. Whenever a URL is entered into the browser, the beginning part is the website's domain name.
One Website Not Working: try contacting other sites on the Internet to see if the DNS error is particular to one website. If only one site is not working, the problem rests with the one website.
Computer Not Connected: another item to check when a DNS error shows up is to see if the computer is on the local network. Check to see if the home or office router can be reached from the computer. If not, the DNS error is from the computer not being able to connect to the local office or home network.
Internet Connection Down: if no websites are working, it might be because the Internet connection is down due to a faulty cable/DNS modem or the ISP is down. Power off and on the modem. If the DNS errors still persist, contact the ISP.
DNS Errors: in the vast majority of cases, DNS errors have nothing to do with DNS. DNS errors are usually one of the first symptoms of internet or wireless connectivity issues.
