Free Fast Public DNS Server for Faster Internet Browsing Experience

Advertisement

Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system which translates a domain name (which can be remembered easily) into an IP address used by computers for communicating to each other, for example when we put the address of GetDriver.com in a browser, that address will be translated to 74.220.212.122 by DNS server. The translating process from a domain’s name to be an IP address takes a time, so the faster DNS that you use, the faster this process will be.

Many internet providers provide free public DNS Server but only few ones are fast. I have already tried several free public DNS Server from some world-class providers and I can feel the difference, web browsing is faster and more responsive.

  1. This is a nice tool, I was trying to find dns information with other methods but upon finding this it solves everything I was asking it to. My time warnerbackbone still seems to be the fastest for me, but, I am wondering if that is biased because I also heard on speedtests that time warner cheats on tests somehow by just giving you a nearby loopback or something, anyway I don’t know but it says it’s the best 2nd in line I have megapath it seems really fast, i’m wondering what the difference between cached and uncached means, i mainly am going to be looking for speed when running videos and playing online games.
