Improve Web Surfing Speed With OpenDNS

 

OpenDNS

 

Did you know whenever you are typing www.google.com at that time the request first goes to the DNS servers of your local ISP. These Domain Name Servers will translate the web URL into some cryptic and hard-to-remember numeric address like 66.102.7.104.

The DNS servers of your ISP (not your modem or computer ) can sometimes be the main reason for slow internet speeds.
For instance, if the DNS server of your ISP is offline for some reason, you will not be able to access the internet unless you are aware of the numeric IP address of the website that you want to visit.To overcome such problems, you may perform a small tweak in your Internet connection settings and web pages will load considerably faster. You need to change your DNS SERVER ADDRESS
Lets start..
The DNS server can be changed from the TCP/IP Properties section.
Open Control Panel => Network Connections => Local Network Connection => TCP IP Properties
You will see a setting called Use the following DNS Server Addresses. Type the following values for the preferred and alternate DNS Servers respectively.
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Capture

Now we  have replaced the default DNS server address of our ISP with the OpenDNS servers which will resolve your computer’s request for domain name resolution much faster.
