Webpage is not available, dns probe finished nxdomain error

This morning when I opened my laptop, I was wondering why I can’t Open Youtube Website in any browser installed in my laptop. I restarted my device but nothing happened. I also cleared all history and data of my browser but still nothing happened. The browser just displayed “this webpage is not available, dns_probe_finished_nxdomain”. I tried to visit other websites like facebook and google but I can browse those websites without problem.

After a couple of minutes, I managed to resolved the issue using the steps below.
