The error refers to the Domain Name Server (DNS) that your system uses is unable to translate the Uniform Resource Locator (URL, web address either Typed in the address line or linked using a hyper-link, favorite or default home page) (In english, the translation of a web address link www.google.com to the Internet Protocol (IP) address that computers actually use to show the page)
Possible causes:

  1. The URL is wrong. (Typed wrong, link no longer active, link changed)
  2. The DNS server listed for your ISP configuration is not working.
  3. The web site is offline.
  4. The DNS server settings for your internet configuration are wrong.
Possible resolutions:
  1. Try a different Web Address, see if it works
  2. Restart (Completely power off your Cable/DSL modem and then do the same with your router)
  3. Check you IP address configuration settings and ensure that auto-assign DNS is selected (Default setting)
  4. Boot to safe mode with networking, see if you can get online that way.

Hi, are you following a link in an email, typing it it by hand, or relying on a link in your browser?
A, The link may be broken (it's mispelled, or taking you somewhere else);
B, It may be that you've miss-spelled it;
C, The link may have cookies disabled. (some sites require cookies to be enabled on your computer).
D, go via link for more info:- http://www.buzzle.com/articles/dns-error.html

A, - ignore this;
B, double check;
C, go into your "tools", internet options, browsing history, and click on "delete". This will clear ALL your history, including saved passwords on sites that you use regularly - BE WARNED!!! Try Facebook again.
D, do what the link says (technical stuff)...

IF, however you are trying from certain computers (like at work / libraries), they may have excluded Facebook / Myspace / Twitter etc from being accessed, due to possible virus infections.

Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.


The servers are located in the network by using it's ip address.
Using names for the domains is easier for humans.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) keeps track of the server ip address related with the domain name.
When an error occurs finding the corresponding ip address for the domain name, youll get the message "Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.".

Get oops the link appears to be broken with every search


Does it make any difference if you go to a specific IP address or to a website name? Like if you try to go to http://Yahoo.com what happens? Or trying to go to http://69.147.114.224 (also Yahoo)? Do the same results come in? If not the same then you need to find a new Domain Name Server (DNS) and your Internet Provider has this information. This information may also be determined by your Router settings.

Oops-this link is broken msg is flagged when i access youtube


If a DNS error is showing, the web site you are visiting is having a problem. It happens with the best of sites. If you are asking for a way to stop Google's suggestions there is a way to do that as well but Google is not the cause of the DNS error.
