[ubuntu] Possible DNS issues?

I have a Ubuntu 12.04 server that I telnet into from a Windows machine. However, recently I've found that I can only ping by IP address. I already know that this screams DNS, but I am unsure what to do. I googled about flushing dns and got this:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart

But when I run it, I receive "command not found." I statically assigned my IP address, mask, etc. I suppose that has something to do with it since I never specified any DNS information. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)
