Clear internal DNS cache in Google Chrome

I was moving a client’s web from one hosting to another and after checking that the DNS registers have already been updated I could load the page on the new server in Chrome. It was like still trying to reach the old IP. Then I assumed Chrome has some kind of DNS cache, and sure it does. If you want to clear it open chrome://net-internals/#dns and press “Clear host cache”.
