Hi Helperon followers, There are several alternative methods to clear the Google Chrome cache
Navigate to chrome://net-internals/#dns and press the “Clear host cache” button.
There are a few ways around it. After clearing the DNS cache through chrome://net-internals/#dns (or using an extension that achieves the same result)
1. Open an incognito window and the new DNS mappings for the domain will be effective immediately.
2. Clear the browser cache. This is cumbersome if you use your browser for regular browsing. You can run a separate instance of the browser as another user and clearing the cache in that account will not interfere with your regular browsing cache. I haven’t tried this but it should work.
3. Hit CTRL+F5. I had to keep CTRL+F5 pressed for about one second which consecutively reloads the page a couple of times. This is odd behavior but it works and is also just as effective. This is my preferred approach.
Clicking “clear host cache” in for Google Chrome, but there are other DNS caches to consider on your machine.
Windows: 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
