The "err_name_not_resolved" error can be frustrating, but there are ways to resolve it. This error essentially means that Chrome can't find the IP address linked to the domain you're trying to access, resulting in the inability to load the website.

Here are a few steps you can try to fix it:
  1. Check Your Internet Connection: Sometimes, the error might occur due to a weak or unstable internet connection. Ensure you're connected to a stable network.
  2. Clear Browser Cache and Cookies: Cached data and cookies might be causing conflicts. Clearing them can often resolve browsing issues. Go to Chrome settings, find "Privacy and Security," and then clear browsing data.
  3. Flush DNS: Flushing your DNS cache can help resolve domain-related issues. Open the Command Prompt (or Terminal on macOS) and type: ipconfig /flushdns (on Windows) or sudo dscacheutil -flushcache (on macOS).
  4. Check Your Hosts File: Sometimes, entries in your computer's hosts file can block certain websites. Ensure there are no unexpected entries. The hosts file is located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows and /private/etc/hosts on macOS.
  5. Change DNS Settings: Switching to a different DNS server (like Google's 8.8.8.8) can sometimes resolve DNS-related errors. You can change these settings in your device or router.
  6. Disable VPN or Proxy: If you're using a VPN or proxy, they might interfere with your DNS resolution. Try disabling them temporarily to see if the error persists.
  7. Restart Your Router: Sometimes, issues might be due to your router. A simple restart can refresh the connection and resolve the problem.
Each case can be slightly different, so it might require a bit of trial and error. If the error persists, it's also a good idea to contact your internet service provider for further assistance. Sharing experiences and solutions like these can indeed make browsing smoother for everyone.

Let's keep the knowledge sharing going!
