Solution

As the error mentions, there might be a problem with the DNS record of your application. However, for the issue I worked on, the root cause was the corruption in the IE registry setting.

 

We renamed the Connections container in the registry key below. After a server restart, a new Connections container was created and the application started working.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Internet Settings > Connections

 

My guess is that an Windows update or another system-level change can cause this issue.
