    Resolving host


    This message appears in the lower left of my browser very frequently.

    Why, and what can be done about it?

    A "host" issue, in which the browser stalls during page loading and displays a "Resolving Host" message, is caused by Google's DNS pre-fetching setting. The setting is intended to speed up navigation but can create "Resolving Host" errors unless it is disabled.

    Software genre: Web browser


    Developer: Google

    The setting and wording may have changed in the latest Chrome version since that article was written. I use Firefox as default, but also have Chrome installed as a backup. This setting under Privacy looks to be very similar in function. Toggle it off and see if it fixes the message you're getting.

    Those are Google Chrome settings. 3 dots upper right, settings, privacy, expand the "more", and look.

    I have read that unchecking Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6) resolves this issue.

    Right click Network - Properties - Change adapter settings. Right click your active connection and click Properties. Uncheck Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
