Google DNS-Is it worth?
Welcome you all to my website, Some months ago , Google introduced Google Public DNS , by using a reliable DNS , you can load website little faster . Basically DNS(Domain Name System) is for resolving a domain name into its associated IP address and loading the content. Some of the key features to be noted for configuring a DNS is
* should not interrupt(censor) domain name
* Avoiding DNS query reject
* Faster browser experience
* Preventing DNS false caching which can be used by hackers to redirect to a phishing webpage. etc
The thing is, i had thought to configure DNS to my machine and tried to run DNS test from two popular softwares.
Google Namebench – http://code.google.com/p/namebench/
GRC’s DNS BenchMark: http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm
I loaded the Google NameBench test and i was astonished . It showed me that by using Google Public DNS – Preferred DNS : 126.96.36.199 and Alternate DNS: 188.8.131.52, the internet will load 151% faster than my current Primary DNS. I also tried to test with DNS BenchMark and i found the similar result with it.
Please do comment if you were aware Google Public DNS , whether you are currently using Google DNS and is it faster than the previous one.
