How to Fix up Server Not Loading Issues on my PC

Step1:  Flush the DNS Cache

Flush DNS in Windows

Click on Start button.

Select Run…

Type “cmd” and press OK button.

You should see the following line: C:Documents and SettingsUser>. Type:

               ipconfig /flushdns

You will see a message containing the following:

“Windows IP Configuration Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.”

Type “exit” to close the prompt.

Flush DNS in Mac OS X:

Click on Finder in the dock.

Click on Macintosh HD.

Click on Applications.

Click on Utilities.

Double-click on Terminal.

In Mac OSX Leopard, you can use the following command to flush the DNS resolver cache:

dscacheutil -flushcache

In Mac OSX versions 10.5.1 and before, the following command performs the same task:

lookupd -flushcache

Flush DNS in Linux:

In Linux, the nscd daemon manages the DNS cache. To flush the DNS cache, restart the nscd daemon. To restart the nscd daemon, use the command:

/etc/init.d/nscd restart

These steps for the various OS will cause your DNS cache to be successfully refreshed.

Suggestions from Friends and Web Search to Fix the Problem Loading issue of Some Website

Best tips to resolve this problem is

You must go into your router.
Enter the setup section.
Select MAC address.
Select user defined.
Change a few numbers and letters in the MAC address.
Save settings and reboot your computer and reset your MODEM.

May be you are thinking why this problem persists well one of my friend told me it could be happen because when viewing the same website/Blog over a router from more than one computer or application at the same time for a period of time. Due to such activity something in server software which puts your IP address on a so called “BAND LIST” and your website hosting company unable to resolve it because they don’t know what is going? And the website is working properly from their point of view and they did nothing.

What most people do to resolve it they simply replace the router. Well it’s not possible for everyone and everyone don’t want to invest money to resolve it then what to do?

If you check your IP address with and without your router, you will see that it is different. The MAC address on your router is different from the one on your modem. The MAC address helps define what your IP address is. If you are on an “IP Band List”, you must change your IP. This is only possible through changing the MAC address on the router or calling you ISP, if you are not using a router.

Well I am using the modem only so this is not for me may be you have router then you can try this. So, I thought it will help you. Well instead have another tips to fix up this problem and could happened that some websites are blocked to unlock check the procedure.
