Google launches public DNS service

December 31st, 2009 No comments

Another competitor to OpenDNS. The Internet giant google is expanding its territory to DNS service. This new venture after the much hyped Google wave, is said to be as part of their ongoing efforts to make the Web faster.

Google Public DNS uses Prefetching before the TTL on a record expires. They refresh the DNS record continuously, asynchronously and independently of user requests for a large number of popular domains.

It guarantees speed, validity and improves security .

“DNS is vulnerable to spoofing attacks that can poison the cache of a nameserver and can route all its users to a malicious website. Until new protocols like DNSSEC get widely adopted, resolvers need to take additional measures to keep their caches secure. Google Public DNS makes it more difficult for attackers to spoof valid responses by randomizing the case of query names and including additional data in its DNS messages,” explained Prem Ramaswami on the Google blog.

If you want to test Google’s Public DNS resolver, use “ and" as its IP addresses. For those of you familiar with OpenDNS you will know how to edit your DNS settings already. A set of step-by-step instructions for Windows, Mac and Linux users can be found here.

Google Public DNS is hosted in data centers worldwide, and uses anycast routing to send users to the geographically closest data center.

Let’s give it a try.

Boost your internet surfing with a a faster DNS

March 21st, 2009 No comments

OpenDNS is a free alternate service to replace your ISP’s DNS service.

Opendns_logo There’s a simple way you can get to Web sites faster, and the great thing is that it won’t cost you a single penny. You can hack the way your PC uses the Domain Name System (DNS), the technology underlying all Web browsing. It’s far simpler to do than you might imagine.

Before you start, let us see how a DNS works. When you type in a URL such as, that URL needs to be translated into a numeric IP address that Web servers and Internet routers can understand. When you type in a URL, a DNS server does the translation, from to, for example. Type this IP address to your browsers address bar and feel how fast the page loads.

DNS servers live on the Internet, and your computer contacts them with the request to do that translation, which is commonly called name resolution. When you use an ISP, your computer will automatically use the default DNS servers specified by your ISP, you typically don’t need to set up DNS in any way. If you’re on a corporate network, your systems administrator may have configured it.

If there’s a delay in contacting the DNS server, or if the DNS server takes too much time resolving the address, you’ll face a delay in getting to a Web site. So even if you’ve got the world’s fastest pipe, your Web surfing will be slowed down.

If you could speed up the name resolution in some way, you’d be able to speed up your Web surfing. And that’s exactly what we are going to do.

By placing company servers in strategic locations and employing a large cache of the domain names,OpenDNS usually processes queries much more quickly than your ISP’s DNS service, thereby increasing page retrieval speed.

The service includes other benefits too, such as phishing filter, domain blocking and typo correction (for example, typing instead of By collecting a list of malicious sites, OpenDNS blocks access to these sites when a user tries to access them through their service.



  • Faster internet surfing experience
  • Easy to Setup
  • Universal (users all over the world from various internet service providers can use this)

What you need to do is to change your DNS servers information on your computer or router to  as primary DNS server and as secondary server.

They make their money when you misspell a domain name, or DNS doesn’t resolve, and you’ll get a search page with their advertisers.

OpenDNS recently launched Phishtank, where users around the world can submit and review suspected phishing sites.

So why don’t you try out ?
