Access a website with a recent DNS change on Windows

Pointing a domain to a new location might turn out to be a problem, because most operating systems keep a DNS cache to speed up the resolution of frequently visited sites. If the location changes before the DNS cache is updated the web server is no longer accessible until the cache is updated again.

To avoid having to wait for the next DNS cache update users may manually flush their DNS cache using the command prompt with administrative privileges and running the following command:
ipconfig /flushdns

You can use
