How to Fix Resolving Host Problem in Google Chrome?

Sometimes you may experience particular sites are started loading very slowly on your Google Chrome browser. If you notice the “Resolving Host” message displayed in browser’s status bar then it could be the root cause for the delay. This resolving host problem also causes the site to load in a scrambled manner without proper links. Besides Google Chrome it also affects all popular browsers like Firefox, Safari, Edge, Internet Explorer, etc. and the sites will not load properly.

Why Resolving Host Happens?

In order to open a website, the site URL entered on the browser address bar is to be resolved to a numerical IP address. This resolution happens through Domain Name System known popularly as DNS. The technical reason for resolving host issue is that the DNS servers configured by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) takes long time to find a mapping IP address for the URL you have entered.

This is probably due to change in ISP or change in DNS settings by your ISP. Sometimes the DNS cache stored in your local computer or Chrome browser may also cause delay in finding the correct IP address of the site.

Below diagram explains how the IP address is obtained from multilevel DNS hierarchy (part A) and then the actual content is retrieved from server using that IP (part B). Resolving host message is displayed on browser’s status bar during the process of part A. Learn more about resolving host or domain name.

Resolving Host Process
Resolving Host Process

The easiest way to overcome resolving host problem is to directly opening the IP address in browser’s address bar which will skip the entire resolving host process. For instance enter 17.178.96.59 to open Apple website instead of typing www.apple.com. Since it is practically not possible to remember IP addresses of all the sites and one site may have multiple IP addresses or one IP is assigned to multiple site in shared hosting scenario, it is necessary to solve the issue.

Here is the list of possible solutions explained in step by step for fixing the resolving host issue. (Network setting changes are explained for Windows users, the same can be followed in Mac with appropriate changes).

How to Fix Resolving Host Issue?

Depending on the root cause of the issue one of the below solutions should fix the resolving host issue:

  1. Change your DNS servers to public DNS servers
  2. Clear DNS cache of Chrome browser
  3. Clear DNS cache of your local PC or Mac
  4. Disable DNS prefetching or prediction on Chrome
  5. Change LAN settings
  6. Modifying hosts file
  7. Don’t use unreliable proxy and VPN
  8. IP conflict due to multiple computers connected to the same wireless router
  9. Contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP)

Each option is discussed detail in the following sections.

Option 1 – Change to Public DNS

Changing the DNS servers in your network settings is the straight forward way of fixing this issue. You can use any of the public DNS servers available in the net. Since all your internet activities will be routed through the DNS servers for resolving domains, only use known and reliable server address and avoid using unknown free server details for security reasons.

Here we used the IP addresses of Google’s public DNS servers for Preferred DNS server as 8.8.8.8 and Alternate DNS server as 8.8.4.4 for TCP/IPv4 as shown in the picture below.

Set Google Public DNS
Set Google Public DNS

After changing the DNS servers, close all browser windows and reopen the browser. Now try opening your website which should open fast without showing any “Resolving host” message in the status bar. All sites should be loaded comparatively faster than before and you can open the sites properly in Firefox, Safari, Edge and Internet explorer also.

Points to Note:
  • For the network with IPv4, you can also try by disabling the check box against “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)” in your network connection properties without changing the DNS. But this will have impact in Windows 10 and you will not be able to create HomeGroup.
  • If your network uses IPv6 then the IP addresses of the Google public DNS will be 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844 for primary and secondary servers.
  • Your internet router by default uses the DNS from ISP which also can cause this problem. Refer the router manual on how to change the DNS and use public DNS instead of the default servers. Especially when you have multiple devices connected to the same router, changing the DNS on each device is a time consuming task, hence try changing it on the router and check the sites open without resolving host message.

Option 2 – Clearing DNS Cache of Google Chrome

Chrome uses DNS caching to facilitate fast loading of sites by mapping the IP addresses from cache when the same domain is opened repeatedly. If the IP address of the site is changed then the DNS caching of Chrome may cause delay in loading the site due to difference in IPs.

  • Go to the command URL “chrome://net-internals/#dns” in your Chrome browser.
  • Click “Clear host cache” button in “Host resolver cache” section or select “Clear cache” option from the drop-down.

If you are using very old version of Chrome browser then you can also try disabling “Built-in Asynchronous DNS” flag by following the below instructions. (This option will not be available on latest Chrome version).

  • Go to URL “chrome://flags”.
  • Press Ctrl+F in Windows or Command+F in Mac and search for “asynchronous”.
Disabling Flag in Google Chrome
Disabling Flag in Google Chrome
  • Select “Disable” from drop-down.
  • Click on “Relaunch Now” button for your changes to take effect.

Option 3 – Clearing Cache of Local PC or Mac

Besides Chrome browser, your local PC or Mac also uses DNS caching to enable fast loading of repeat domain names accessed. So clearing your computer’s cache could also help in fixing the issue.

  • If you use Windows, open the “Command Prompt” and enter the command “ipconfig /flushdns” and you will see a success message. Press “Windows key + R” and enter “cmd” to open command prompt in Windows XP/Vista/7. Use power user options by pressing “Windows key + X” to access command prompt in Windows 8/10.
  • If you use Mac, open “Terminal” application from “Utilities”,  enter the command “dscacheutil -flushcache” and you will not see any success message. If you use OS X version 10.5.1 and below then use the command “lookupd -flushcache” for clearing the DNS cache.

Option 4 – Disabling DNS Prediction or Prefetching

If the issue is not resolved after changing to public DNS servers or clearing the cache as explained above then try the following option. Open the Chrome browser window and click on the “Customize and control Google Chrome” icon shown in the upper right corner (it should be like three dots in vertical). Select “Settings” option as shown in the picture below.

Open Chrome Settings
Open Chrome Settings

Note: You can open Chrome settings using URL “chrome://settings” in the address bar.

Then click on “Advanced” option.

Advanced Chrome Settings
Advanced Chrome Settings

Go to “Privacy and security” section and uncheck the option “Use a prediction service to load pages more quickly” as shown in the below picture. Restart your browser and check the site is loading properly.

Disable DNS Prefetching in Google Chrome

Basically Chrome try to resolve all IP addresses of the links on a webpage. Though this is intended to improve the loading speed while you read the content on that page, this may negatively impact depending on the number and types of links. Note this option may be different on different versions of Chrome like “Predict network actions to improve page load performance” or similar to that.

Option 5 – Changing LAN Settings

If you see a “Resolving proxy” message in the status bar it might be due to your LAN settings. As explained in the option 4, open Chrome’s settings and click on the “Show advanced settings…” link. Navigate to “Network” section and click on “Change proxy settings…” button.

Go to “Connections” tab and click on “LAN settings” button as shown in the picture below.

Changing LAN Settings
Changing LAN Settings

Uncheck the box “Automatically detect settings” if already checked and restart your browser.

Remove Automatic Configuration Settings

Option 6 – Modifying Hosts File

Hosts file is located in local PC or Mac and controls the resolution of a domain name to an IP address before any other DNS resolution takes place. Adding IP and the corresponding domain name entries in hosts file helps to overcome resolving host issue since the IP will be directly obtained from the hosts file without looking further. This will be useful to faster few frequently visited sites but it is really hard to maintain the IP address of each site you visit in the hosts file.

Below picture shows the hosts file entries in Window 8. Check out the article on how to modify hosts file entries in Windows 7, 8 and 10.

Below picture shows the hosts file entries in Mac. Check out the article on how to modify hosts file entries in Mac OS X

Adding Entries in Hosts File in Mac
Adding Entries in Hosts File in Mac

Option 7 – Disable Proxy and VPN

Using proxy server or VPN helps to hide your identity and browse the web anonymously. It also helps to access blocked websites by government, organizations and schools. Unfortunately many of the people use these services to do illegal activities. There are scam monitoring services on the web that updates the IP addresses from where the scams are originating. Companies like Google and other web developers use these scam monitoring services database to filter unwanted network. Most likely all those free services will get blocked since proxy and VPN companies share the same server details with large number of users. You will also see I’m not a robot captcha test in Google Search due to reasons like this.

So ensure not to use free proxy and VPN services and try to get premium services like VyprVPN or ExpressVPN to avoid seeing resolving host message.

Option 8 – IP Conflict

The last option is to restart your computer or restart the internet connection by disconnecting the modem power and connecting it again. Nowadays it is a common scenario in a house having laptop, iPhone or iPad and all are connected to the same router. You may notice a Windows system error showing an IP conflict message in your taskbar’s tray as shown in the below picture.

IP Conflict Error in Windows
IP Conflict Error in Windows

And the IP conflict error on Mac will show like below:

IP Conflict Error in Mac
IP Conflict Error in Mac

Though it may not cause resolving host issue it will interrupt your internet connection and delay the loading of sites. Restarting your modem or computer will resolve this IP conflict issue.

Option 9 – Contact Your ISP

Contacting your ISP, if none of the above mentioned solutions at browser, computer and router level work for you. Discuss the issue with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) along with the URLs of the sites you are trying to access. Your ISP can check at their end and confirm whether they are blocking those sites. They can also provide alternate DNS servers or change configuration settings at their side to overcome resolving host issue.

Conclusion

We hope one of the above-explained solution could helped you to fix the resolving host issue in Google Chrome and other browsers. Remember the below points when you try to fix the issue:

  • The site not opening for you in one network may open fast in another network, since different DNS servers may be used by that ISP.
  • If you use Wireless and Lan connection alternatively then DNS servers are to be changed in both network settings separately.
  • Changing the DNS on router will affect all devices like mobile phones, tablets, laptops and computers connected to that router.
  • Modifying DNS and hosts file need administrator access to your local PC or Mac.

  1. Hi. I have tried all these issues and found no solution. The weird thing for me is that this problem only affects one computer on my home network. I had the problem on an old PC which needed replacing for other reasons. But lo and behold the new PC has the same problem! It does of course connect to the internet in the same way: via a wired connection to my router (albeit through a long cable and various sockets). So perhaps there’s a weak link somewhere in my connection. But all other PCs and mobile devices have no issues at all, even those that run off the same wired connection (e.g. I have a second WiFi modem on this wired connection which broadcasts on a separate SSID and all devices that connect to that encounter no internet problems). Also the problem recurs on this one PC regardless of browser and DNS settings and IP flushes etc. And it happens if I connect directly to the modem by wire or by WiFi. Any bright ideas?

  3. G’day all,

    Just to say I tried everything here and was about to do a Linux re-install when I saw somewhere that other appliances could interfere with my WiFi modem, so I moved it across the room away from my computer and TV and wammo… its all good now. The test will be just “how long” it remains this way. Will pop back in a few days if I remember and update.

  5. On option 2 mentioned above I find the following for “Built-in Asynchronous DNS” which is different that what you have shown above. Is this the same thing?

    On Windows 10 desktop using Chrome 80.0.3987.149 64 bit

    Omnibox Preserve Default Match Against Async Update
    Preserves the default match against change when providers return results asynchronously. This prevents the default match from changing after the user finishes typing. Without this feature, if the default match is updated right when the user presses Enter, the user may go to a surprising destination. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android

  6. For me, the slow resolving host problem in Chrome was due to a service called “Energy Server Service queencreek”. I used process of elimination, disabling half of the services at a time until I figured out which one it was. Searches online say it’s from Intel, but System Configuration windows lists its source as unknown.

  7. I´m convinced this is a problem intrinsic to Chrome, not ISP, no DNS, as other browsers continue working fine.
    In my experience the quickest – and surest – solution is to reinstall Chrome. It is not as straight forward as it should be, with a number of error messages in the process, but if you ignore them as soon as the computer is restarted all is fine. It worked every time and Chrome stayed stable for a few weeks, sometimes longer.

  8. I’ve begun to experience this problem over the past few days and have tried everything on this list except changing the hosts file (as I don’t know what domain to put) and contacting my ISP. The only solution seems to be to restart my PC every day instead of leaving it on and simply logging onto the internet every morning as I have done for the past five years (with this PC)!

    Any advice please?

    Reply
    • Is it working fine on your mobile device that uses different internet service provider? If yes, this is something to do with your ISP. Otherwise, you can cleanup the DNS cache on your PC as explained in option #3 and try. You can also check on other browsers to make sure it is not related to your browser.

      Hope you are not using VPN or proxy by default to redirect the network.

      • Thanks for the reply.

        I don’t have a smartphone but my parents do and they’ve had no issues. We all have tablets which run on Safari and they are fine. I have Firefox on my PC and that is also affected when this problem occurs, running extraordinarily slow like it was on dial-up.

        No proxy or VPN running either. DNS flushed as well. It just seems to be on this PC. I did a Windows (8.1) update last night which involved several reboots and all is well thus far. The problem often occurs when I log off from the internet for a while. Usually I stay connected all day unless I have to go out for an extended period of time, or at night when I go to bed. It’s usually the next morning that the problem starts again, so I guess I’ll find out tomorrow if it is recurring but this has been the case for the last four days now.

        • Update – As predicted, after a good day on Monday following the PC restarts today is back to the above problem. I suppose contacting my ISP is the last option open to me now.

          Incidentally, as I haven’t changed my hosts file, is it possible to simply add my IP address alone without additional domain names, since that would mean adding every website I visit?

          Thanks in advance.

          Reply
          • We don’t think hosts file work like that – you need a IP / domain mapping for each site. You can contact your ISP and discuss with them especially when you use their DNS.

          • Hi again,

            You’re not going to believe this but it seems the culprit was the latest build of Malwarebytes! I update it two weeks ago and it was just after then this start happening. After uninstalling it problem seems to be solved. I was also advised by the tech guys at my ISP to remove CCleaner as well which is reported to be causing problems of late too.

            Thanks for all your advice and this helpful guide. I hope this is something you might want to investigate and add to the list for future reference.

          • You are exactly right…….my Chrome was running so slow, it was painful and unusable. All I did was quit out of Malwarbytes and immediately, Chrome returned to working quickly and resolving pages immediately. Thanks.

  9. Thank you so much for the valuable info. I had some issues with my DNS and that affects my mobile access to the internet. Not only these solutions helped to fix my phone issue, but it also has made the browsing much faster!

    Reply
  10. It would be great if you would begin your troubleshooting more scientifically – attempt to find the problem, instead of trying of all remedies blindly. I would begin with either another browser (MSIE or Firefox) or command prompt (nslookup or ping) to see if the problem is in Chrome. And if it is, I wouldn’t touch DNS or network adapter.

    Reply
    • Well, it was mentioned in the very first paragraph that the issue will appear on all the browsers. Though other browsers will not show the resolving host message, the result will be same that you may not able to access the site fast/properly.

      If the problem is DNS then you should change it on the browser/router/device level, no matter which browser you use.

  11. Hi all, if you are still facing the issue after going through all the steps in this article, make sure that you have also unchecked the “ip flood detection” feature in your router/modem. This setting could also be named “DoS protection” or something similar. This is a feature for the use of public internet owners such as cafes and shops etc and most home users do not need this protection. And leaving this setting active is actually one of the potential culprits of the “resolving host” issues. It also may cause packet losses and reduce your online gaming and streaming performance.

    I have found about all of this after dealing with this problem for days and looking for a solution for many hours. Hopefully this comment can provide an additional try to fix the issue for the people who are dealing with this very annoying problem.

    By the way kudos to the article author as this is one of the better step by step solution on the internet to a very common network problem, it is exactly how it should be done.

  14. Our solution was to remove a bunch of bogus DNS servers that weren’t responding from the Network Settings of the mac. At some point in time they were legit, but after a network move, they stopped responding. After removing the 4 bogus dns servers, things are much much faster.

    • Corporates have their own Internet/DNS services (you can see the ISP name as company name from the IP address). In such case, if the site is intended to access you can report to them. Otherwise the site or the service within the site might be blocked by the company.

  21. Great suggestions. One of the things that was giving me this problem was that my wifi unit was setup as a ‘Router’ as opposed to an ‘Access Point’. My cable modem connects to the ISP/cable company, my computer is plugged into the cable modem, and my wifi unit is plugged into the cable modem. Once I turned the wifi unit to ‘access point’ only, it stopped trying to route and the problem resolved itself. Cheers.

    • There are two type of IPs – V4 and V6. This may create compatibility issues between your PC, router and servers when one of them does not support the the other format. Please follow the steps in the below comment to find out where is the issue then it is easy to work on fixing it.

  24. I tried option 2, waiting to see if it will work.

    I purchased my new computer from Costco and they said the problem is with my router, and to buy one. My internet provider said it’s not necessary because the modem that I rent has one built in.

    When I called tech support for my computer, they said it could be the wifi signal, and I should return the computer for another one.

    I’m confused, does the “resolving host” issue have to do with the info you provided on this page, or is it my computer? I use Google Chrome, but when I get the “resolving host” message, I can’t seem to get anywhere using Mozilla either?

    • Narrow down your issue with the following actions:
      1. Open a local website (or IP address of any website) to ensure you are connected to internet. If not the problem could be on your PC or router not configured correctly.
      2. Try to connect your PC with some other networks (other than your ISP) – this will help you identifying the issue is on the PC or on the network at ISP side.
      3. Try connecting directly with LAN network cable to see if it is a router issue.

      PC, browser, router and ISP – all using DNS settings to provide fast results. So the problem could be on anywhere.

  26. Funny enough, changing the DNS sort of worked for a while, but now the issue is back. Although I have not updated anything recently, or changed anything, even after restarting the router and the mac and going through these steps again checking they were all done, the issue is still here. It sometimes shows “Resolving host” and sometimes “Waiting for…” and sometimes just nothing at all, as if my connection was just lost. How annoying!

  27. For Comcast – Disabling IPv6 in my PC’s network connection properties worked, although I wanted to dig a little deeper. I can’t disable IPv6 altogether in my router, as it seems Comcast needs it to connect (at least on my residential line – my business line doesn’t seem to care).

    The problem for Comcast seems to lie in their DHCPv6 server (at least when I was having my problem). When I let my router “Get IPv6 DNS Server Automatically” the resolving host problem occurred. When I manually selected my IPv6 DNS Servers from the router (I used Google’s IPv6 dns servers), it fixes the problem.

    Interestingly, when I manually select IPv6 DNS servers on my PC, it doesn’t work. I don’t know enough about networking to know why.
