This morning when I opened my laptop, I was wondering why I can’t Open Youtube Website in any of my browser. I restarted my device but nothing happened. I also cleared all history and data of my browser but still nothing happened. The browser just displayed “this webpage is not available, dns_probe_finished_nxdomain”. I tried visiting other websites like facebook and google and it’s working fine.
Browser displayed ‘this webpage is not available’
That was unusual because I was able to browse other websites successfully except YouTube.
Some causes of this error might be:
- the server of the website is down,
- there is really a problem with your settings or a problem with the dns server of your internet service provider.
In my case, I managed to resolve the issue using the steps below.
