What is error code 105 and how to fix it

What is error code 105 and how to fix it - If you choose Google Chrome as the default browser, sometimes there will be an error 105 (net :: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED). This error is specific to Google Chrome, so you will probably want to know the cause of this error and some ways to fix it.

What is error 105? What causes it?


Error 105 is displayed after a DNS lookup error, after entering the URL of the page you are trying to access to Google Chrome, the browser will try to translate the page's name into an Internet address (IP address) using the domain name system (DNS) ). If the browser cannot access DNS, the DNS resolution fails, error 105 is displayed.

In addition to the DNS server not responding, error 105 is caused by:

  • No connection to the Internet.

  • A network is misconfigured.

  • A firewall prevents Chrome from accessing the network.
Because the error code does not indicate the exact cause, you will have to trace the string and check for the causes.

How to fix error code 105?


As a first step, check that you are connected to the internet and that you have entered the correct domain name or URL in your browser.

If you're connected to the internet and there's no error in the URL, try using some other unrelated domains (do a random Google search and follow a few links) to see if they work. This means that you have valid DNS and maybe the DNS server is trying to access with problem.

If you cannot access other domain names, or your DNS server has problems and you want to change your DNS server.

Here's how to change your DNS in Windows:

Right-click on the Wifi icon and select Open Network & Internet Settings.

Click Change adapter options.

Right-click on your active network connection and select Properties.

Left-click Internet Protocol Version 4, then select Properties (If you use IPv6, do this on IPv6).

Select the following DNS server address: then enter one of the public DNS server addresses from below:

  • 1.1.1 = DNS CloudFlare

  • 208,67,220,220 or 208,67,222,222 = OpenDNS

  • 8.8.8 or = Google DNS
If you are a MAC user, here's how you change your DNS:

  • Go to System Preferences → Network.

  • Click Advanced.

  • Click the DNS tab.

  • Click the + sign (lower left) to add a new DNS server.

  • Enter one of the public DNS server addresses listed above.

  • Click OK, and then click Apply.
If the webmaster is not working due to this error, then you should fix the problem:

  • Enter from another computer / phone to see only you affected or the customer.

  • Clear the DNS cache by navigating to chrome: // net-internals # dns and clicking the Clear cache server delete button.
If that doesn't work, you have to check your domain's host and A records and you need to use: digwebinterface.com or https: //toolbox.googl OKs.com/apps/dig/.

If the domain name is www.example.com and the root domain (example.com) has an NS record and that the NS rules for example ns1.hosting.com resolves the query "A" example.com.

If so, the primary nameserver also resolves FQDN (www.example.com).

If not, add NS and A. NS records will change at the domain registrar (namecheap.com, godaddy.com, etc.) and must point to the hosting company name server such as: ns1 .host.net ns2.host.com.

IPv6 problem

Error 105 is generated because the device connects to IPv6 and requires AAA AAA records to connect to the IPv6 address.

The server will not correctly handle AAA AAA queries or slow responses. In Chrome navigate to chrome: // net-internals / # dns and find the domain name. If you see IPv6 in Family, this will be a problem.

The workaround is to disable IPv6 in Internet Settings.

Here's how in Windows:

  • Right-click on the Wi-Fi icon and select Open Internet & Network Settings.

  • Click Change adapter options.

  • Right-click on your active network connection and select properties.

  • Scroll down to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP / IPv6) and clear the checkbox.

  • Click Ok to save.

  • Restart your computer.
Here's how to turn off IPv6 on macOS:

You will need to run a command through the Terminal. You need to run this command again when there are any changes to the network options because it reverts this setting.

  • Open Finder

  • Click on Applications

  • Click Utility Directory

  • Double click on the Terminal application. and run the following command in the application window to list your network interfaces and their names: networksetup -listallnetworkservice
After you define the network interface, enter the following command in the terminal window to turn off IPv6 on that interface:

If it's Ethernet, enter: Ethernetsetup -setv6off Ethernet

If it is Wi-Fi, enter: Networksetup -setv6off Wi-Fi

(You need quotes to wrap the interface name.)

Adult filters or National filters


If you get the error ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED while using hotel or other WiFi, it is because they implemented some kind of adult content filter and the page you are visiting has encountered some filter settings.

A website is banned in that country for legal reasons (e.g. online gambling, Activist forums, etc.)

You check with other tools like Down For People Or Just Me, if the page is reported to be working, you want to select the default DNS set by the Router (usually the default is ISP) to some public DNS plus other servers like CloudFlare, Google, OpenDNS

Fixing error code 105 is difficult, but hopefully we have helped you fix some, so you'll know what to do next time you encounter this error code.
