DNS cache (also known as DNS resolver cache) is a device-stored temporary database that contains records of recent DNS lookups. It allows a device to quickly and efficiently resolve domain names to IP addresses without repeatedly querying a DNS server whenever a domain name is accessed. In this guide, we are about to share “How to Clear DNS Cache on Android Devices.”

When a domain name has been resolved to an IP address, the results are stored in the device’s DNS cache. This is so that subsequent requests for the same domain can be resolved faster. If the cache contains outdated information, clearing the cache will force the device to retrieve updated information from the DNS server.
