Clearing Linux system DNS cache

If you're having issues with our service, sometimes it would be helpful to flush or clear your DNS cache especially when you've just specified our DNS IPs for the first time.

Note: You should always try to clear your browser's cache first before trying to clear your Linux system cache. Please see our faq articles on flushing your browsers cache.
Run this command at your  Terminal to flush DNS:
sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean restart
Followed up the above command with this:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload
If you have installed nscd DNS cache in your system, please also run the command below at your Terminal.
sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart
