Try this. 

Beings this issue is a DNS issue, on Windows 7 go to Start>type "services.msc" without quotes and look for "DNS Client". Right click "DNS Client" and click Restart. Once finished, close Chrome and reopen the webpage. Should work for you. 


Windows 8 user same theory with the "services.msc" but to get there, either swipe in from the right, Windows key + C, or put mouse cursor to the top right or bottom of the screen. Click search and type in "services.msc" no quotes. Hope this helps!
