    Did you mean: 

    DNS address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

    Registered the domain www.alphapensionmanagement.co.uk and purchased godaddy wordpress hosting which it then automatically installed but when I press the WP-Admin button in "My Hosting" to get to the wordpress control panel this error just comes up:

     

    DNS address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

     

    Do I have to do something with the DNS settings to get this working or should it all be automatic?

     

    UPDATE: Now when I go to http://www.alphapensionmanagement.co.uk/wp-admin I just get a blank page with the small words "page ok" at the top but no wordpress login page?

     

    Thanks

    Hi @nigelgreen1985

     

    Thank you for your post. I checked the login gateway as well by going to:

    http://www.alphapensionmanagement.co.uk/wp-login.php

     

    The gateway is resolving on my end so the error you see may be due to DNS caching. I am including a link for directions to flush the DNS that may resolve the issue. 

     

    How do I flush my DNS cache?

    In most cases this issue will clear on its own within 72 hours. 

     

    Hope this helps!
