DNS Problem - DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

I've started a web hosting service for my friends at office which uses VestaCP Control Panel. Sometimes, when other people try to access my website, they get a DNS not found error "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN"

My hostnames are ns1.flaunt7.com and ns2.flaunt7.com which I created in the hostname section of GoDaddy.
Both of them have this IP : 51.15.59.215 and also my control panel (VestaCP) automatically creates the records.
My server provider (Scaleway) allows only 1 IP per server so I can't attach another IP address for use in the second name server.

So how do I fix this problem which some people are facing - "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN"
My Domain name is flaunt7.com

You have set-up the nameservers and the domain correctly. The error comes about when Google cannot finish a DNS call correctly.

This could be either:
1) at your nameservers end - perhaps sometimes it's offline and/or rebooting?
2) at your network's end where the DNS servers they are using to lookup a domain are failing.

I'm facing error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN in my Chrome web browser. After watching this error message, the browser stops responding and crashes all the active tabs without giving any warning message.

The error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN in the Chrome browser is quite effective so, I fixed it following these instructions.

Step 1: Right tap on Network icon and hit Open Network and Sharing Center.

Step 2: Tap “Change adapter settings” (top left side).

Step 3: Now right tap on your active Network Connection (LAN, WiFi, Ethernet, etc.) and hit Properties.

Step 4: Choose “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and tap Properties.

Step 5:
Tap use the following DNS server addresses: and then add below server addresses and tap OK.
Preferred DNS Server: 8.8.8.8
Alternate DNS Server: 8.8.4.4
