How to clear your computer's DNS cache

Your DNS cache stores the locations (domain names and their IP addresses) of web servers that contain pages which you have viewed.

If the location of the web server changes before the entry in your DNS cache updates, you will be unable to access the site (or older content may still appear to be online).

Clearing your DNS cache will solve problems of viewing old or stale web content.

Email Set up info
Please note that we only provide email services - not the software or devices.

Email Software
We do not provide email software for your computer or laptop. You must go to the software vendor to set up your email software. For example, Outlook is developed and sold by Microsoft, so Microsoft is who you would go to for help with Outlook.

Email Devices
We do not provide email devices, like smart phones, tablets, or any devices that might be set up to access your email. For example, iPhones are Apple products, so Apple or their dealers is who you would go to for help with the products they manufacture.

Instructions
That being said, we have several basic instructions here that we hope may help get you started, but for the BEST help, please directly contact the vendor or creator of the software you are using - or the company that sold you the software (or the phone) you are trying to hook up. We will be happy to recommend other companies that specialize in this regard.
