5 Best DNS Servers

ArticlesBlog

Written by:


Your ISP automatically assigns DNS servers
when your router or computer connects to the internet via DHCP… but you don’t have to
use those One reason you might want to change the DNS
servers assigned by your ISP is if you suspect there’s a problem with the ones you’re using
now. An easy way to test for a DNS server issue is by typing a website’s IP address
into the browser. If you can reach the website with the IP address, but not the name, then
the DNS server is likely having issues. Another reason to change DNS servers is if
you’re looking for a better browsing speed, or block malware, pornography or getting american
netflix outsides states. We at smartdnsproxy set out to find some of
the best DNS servers around be it free or paid
And Here are 7 of them ——– 1. CloudFareDNS (DNS Addresses: 1.1.1.1 and
1.0.0.1) Normally, I would have suggested Google DNS
for speed. But a week ago, CloudFare has announced a brand-new DNS service, which is currently
way faster at resolving queries than Google DNS. (shots fire at google) Since we are looking for speed, we ran several
benchmarks, and as of making this video, CloudFare is faster than Google DNS or any other DNS
as a matter of fact. While CloudFare makes no claims to protect
you from intrusive or malware infected ads etc. They do have strict data privacy claims
like no logging of IP address and retain KPMG to audit our systems annually to ensure that
we’re doing what we say. Overall, If you need a fastest resolving DNS
but don’t want to give your data to Google, (although they will have that anyway) CloudFare
DNS is the best option. And yes, didn’t I tell you, it’s completely free, Cloudflare
offers DNS service for businesses to make money. 2. OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220. OpenDNS is one of the most popular DNS servers
that is not only fast but also provides some of the best security and parental controls
for your network. The best thing about OpenDNS is that you configured
it to block adult content. If need be, you can entirely remove or configure how strict
the filter should be and what type of websites to block (ex. adult, gambling, pornography,
etc.) directly from the OpenDNS dashboard. Another awesome yet, little known feature
about, OpenDNS, you can monitor your network traffic, meaning you can see what your kids
are browsing on your home network and if need you can even block a particular website or
service like whatsapp. OpenDNS is free for the most part, however,
some features like domain whitelisting and lock down environment are only available for
pro accounts. To get pro account, you only have to pay $19.95 per year. Overall, if you are looking to enforce parental
control on your network, to block adult websites. Go with openDNS. 3. Smart DNS Proxy Generally, to access a website or service
that is lock behind geo-restrictions, we use VPNs. As most of you know, but VPNs are quite
a bit slow when compared to your regular internet connection. However, you won’t face those
issues when using Smart DNS Proxy. Unlike other DNS services, the main goal of
Smart DNS Proxy is to unlock geo-restricted websites like US-Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Spotify,
etc. Do mind that Smart DNS Proxy is not a VPN.
i.e, it will not change your IP address and/or encrypt your internet connection. It just
unlocks the geo-restricted websites by redirecting all the traffic from their servers. DNS Addresses will be available in the Smart
DNS Proxy dashboard. Depending on the location you chose, the DNS addresses will be different. Smart DNS Proxy is a completely paid service
that costs $4.99 per month. There is a free 14-day trial that requires no credit card. Overall, If you are looking for a good service
that unlocks geo-restricted websites (like watching netflix-us from outside US or BBC
iplayer outside UK) but without sacrificing your internet speed then Smart DNS Proxy is
for you. 4. Level 3 While Level 3 is not as big as Google DNS,
it does provides a lot of ISPs their connection (consider it like a ISP for the ISP) so they
are huge, reliable and secure. However, the speed could vary, depending on
your location in the world, so be sure to run some dns benchmarks to find out best one
for you. I’ll leave some links in the video description. That said, if you are looking for reliable
DNS, with high-level performance go with Level3. . 5. Comodo Secure DNS
Most of you might know that Comodo provides SSL certificates, antivirus software for various
operating systems. Other than that, Comodo also has one of the best DNS service that
is mainly focused on security and reliability. Some of those security features include but
not limited to real-time blocking as soon as a domain is detected to be not secure,
blocks harmful websites, protection from phishing attacks and malware sites, etc. One of the
things I really like about Comodo Secure DNS is that it can also automatically block websites
that are using excessive ads, pop-ups and websites that are serving malware-infected
ads. That being said, Comodo Secure DNS is not
an alternative to a firewall or anti-virus software. Overall, if you are looking for security focus
dns to protect yourself from harmful websites and malware, while parental control is not
a requirement, then go for comodo dns. ——
All in all, each DNS service shared here has its own advantages and geared to a specific
use case. If you need basic security and speed, choose CloudFare DNS. For parental control, speed, and basic security
choose OpenDNS or SafeDNS (Paid). If you just want to access websites censored
by your ISP or government then try UncensordDNS. To access the geo-restricted websites, Smart
DNS Proxy will be a good choice. And guess, we at Smart DNS Proxy also offers
14 day free trial with no credit card requie. Just go to Smart DNS Proxy.com and signup.
We have setup video for almost every devices, Links to both will be in the description below. That said, check out our video on how to setup
openvpn, by clicking here. As always, it’s vamsi from Smart DNS Proxy
and thanks for watching.
