    Is there a terminal command to clear cache?

    Dynadot's latest email says to use the terminal command to clear the cache of my computer. Is there a command to clear the cache, gentlemen?

    Are they talking about the DNS cache?
    If so, then this should be what you're looking for:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean start

    Thanks, JD but that did not change anything. Maybe I have a creepy Gremlin living in my computer trying to give me a stroke!!

    You run Ubuntu 8.04, right?
    Try this one:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

    Is this what was supposed to happen, JD?

    Honestly, after reading around a bit, I don't think Ubuntu 8.04 caches DNS by default.
    So there really shouldn't be a need to clear anything. Simply restarting your internet connection should be all that's needed.

    I can verify that they are working from the UK as well. It may be that your ISP has an aggressive proxy or dns caching policy which is holding on to the old ip addresses.

    What happens when you run the command
    Code:
    traceroute www.seriouscousins.com
    "I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    I was instructed to add traceroot from the package manager. After installation I got this:
    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$ traceroute Paynal Homepage
    Paynal Homepage Name or service not known
    Cannot handle "host" cmdline arg `Paynal Homepage' on position 1 (argc 1)
    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$

    Paynal Homepage appears in the terminal log instead of paynal homepage and I can not change it back.

    It looks like you put the http:// bit in the route. You don't need that as it uses a different protocol. So just put
    Code:
    traceroute www.seriouscousins.com
    You should see something like
    Code:
    $ traceroute www.seriouscousins.com
    traceroute to www.seriouscousins.com (204.236.239.5), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
