Best DNS

article #111, updated 3579 days ago

For non-LAN-domain workstations, and as forwarders for LAN domain controllers, and also as servers for Exchange and other SMTP server lookups, the best DNS servers around are the OpenDNS servers:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

and the Google Public DNS servers:

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

OpenDNS is considerably more functional; one can use it to prevent web sites from being accessed, and there are quite a few other features.  Google’s are sometimes faster, sometimes slower; but they are certainly easier to remember.
