What if your ISP DNS Sucks and causes problems ?

Postby Softex » 01 Dec 2012, 19:18

Some of the internet users worldwide specially in third world countries have problems reaches different websites because their ISP (internet service providers) has problems with his DNS Servers.

Basically DNS servers is responsible for translating web addresses such as www.softexsw.com to Server IP location, so when you type a website url in your browser, your computer use the default DNS (usually provided by your ISP) to translate the URL you want into an IP address and then goes to it. When your ISP DNS is not stable or blocking some websites or even slow, you can always change your DNS to googe Free dns servers.

Basically change your existing connection DNS to google and all of your problems with DNS will go away and then you will have much faster and stable access to websites.

Google DNS Servers are easy to remember, just make your primary DNS to be 8.8.8.8 and secondary to be 8.8.4.4 and there you go,

for more details about Google DNS Free Servers, you can check their websites directly on : https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Moreover, there are several other DNS Services that works exactly the same way like Google free DNS , some of them are

OPENDNS
Primary : 208.67.222.222
Secondary :208.67.220.220

Norton DNS for Home
Primary : 198.153.192.50
Secondary : 198.153.194.50

DNS Advantage
Primary : 156.154.70.1
Secondary : 156.154.71.1


But to be honest, we think Google DNS is the best in both stability and speed, so make sure to try them first :)
