What is the Reason To Get Ping Request Could Not Find Host Error Message?
You receive this error message due to the wrong DNS information stored on your computer. When you type the URL of a website on a browser, your computer needs to know the IP address of the website to load it.
Your computer does it by a process called DNS lookup. DNS lookup process converts the website host address into the respective IP address.
Domain Name System (DNS) helps your computer in the DNS lookup process.
For example, when you type www.systosys.com on the browser address bar, your computer checks the respective IP address of the hostname systosys.com in the DNS lookup table.
If the DNS information stored on your computer fails to complete the DNS lookup process, you will receive the error message Ping request could not find host www.systosys.com. Please check the name and try again.
