Free Fast Public DNS Servers List

The most basic task of DNS is to translate hostnames such as theos.in to IP address such as 74.86.49.131. In very simple terms, it can be compared to a phone book. DNS also has other important use such as email routing.

This is my list of better, fast public dns servers and free dns server (as compare to your ISP / DSL / ADSL / cable DNS service providers dns servers). These dns servers are free to all. I was able to improve my browsing speed with following DNS servers. Use any one of the following provider.

  4. To all thoose who have posted 4.2.2.* addresses:

    These are ROOT name servers and shouldn’t be queried unless by a DNS server. For more info google root-servers and you will soon find why this is bad for you and bad for them.

  5. Chuck,

    I just checked my named.root file and 4.2.2.* are not ROOT name servers IP. You are safe to use them. Also most DNS server don’t act as recursive name server.

  6. Yooowwwww!! works fantastic!! the 4.2.2.1 is extremely fast!!

    and to Chuck N., the use of top level dns servers for the sake of resolving names only will not affect since you’re only querying names and the server resolves it for you, nothing else and nothing illegal or harmful whatsoever…

  7. Dnsserver list just changed their listing to about 1000 dns servers, with real time QRTT times, and now a downloadable beta tool that will configure you DNS servers by your schedule to the current fastest DNS servers.

  8. I have a Reliance Broadband connection, and they have a DNS proxy, so even if I set my PC to use OpenDNS etc, they just intercept the query. During office hours when their proxy is heavily loaded, I can’t use the net, all DNS queries timeout.
    Is there any way to solve this problem ?

    You can try use nslookup:
    nslookup http://www.com 4.2.2.2
    where http://www.com – any host and 4.2.2.2 – testing name server IP or name. If server work and resolve names you will see answer like this:

    C:\Users\RU>nslookup http://www.com 4.2.2.2
    Server: vnsc-bak.sys.gtei.net
    Address: 4.2.2.2

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: http://www.com
    Address: 174.142.8.58

    And if server is not work right an answer will be:

    C:\Users\RU>nslookup http://www.com 4.2.2.10
    DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
    Server: UnKnown

  29. Recently I programmed my router to use public DNS servers to get my ISP out of the business of intercepting my DNS activity. But I am still seeing a few delays, “looking up http:/…”

    Is there any merit in finding and using DNS servers that are geographically closer to my location? (I’ve seen download displays where the server location is noted, suggesting you should pick one that’s closer.)

    If a closer DNS server makes sense, how does one find the geographic location of a given server?

    thanks

  31. Re:
    “Nothing works, can someone tell me HOW to set up intenet? i have with no filters but i cant setup internet, i tried most of DNS here but nothing works. Please advise.”

    Check your mail box for a fresh DVD of the Internet. Mine comes semiannually, but your Internet DVD regularity may depend on your subscription plan. Did you call ICANN and check that your Internet subscription is active? Also try cleaning your old Internet DVD. It may be stale, but it’s something. Good luck.

  32. I’ve been trying to connect to quicken.com (and associated sites like intuit.com) and for almost a year, I have failed — no ping, no browser access, and so on. Today I tried tracert and found that after about 20 hops it starts getting timeouts. I guess somewhere along the line smething is failing,

    Is this a problem with my DNS server or with somebody else’s DNS server or is it something else? I am at my wit’s end since I cannot even connect to Quicken’s support mechanism. Other people don’t seem to have the problem — google for example claims that it is caching quicken.intuit.com successfully!

    Cheers,

  33. Quick check tells me that quicken.com and intuit.com are dropping ICMP packets (Ping requests) which means that hop twenty where you start to get time-outs is probably their router.

    If I punch their URL into my web-browser it comes up without issue, what feedback do you get when you try to go directly to the website in question? (400/500 type error? Redirect? etc.)

    It’s unlikely to be an issue with your DNS servers unless your DNS servers are hosting an incorrect/old record.

  34. I am using a linksys router and trying to change settings to use public dns. I cannot ping anything when I use any of these public dns numbers. Is there some extra setting on the router to access these? Otherwise, my comcast modem keeps directing me to their service site, so, I have internet connection is there, just can’t get around comcast.

  35. Hi ,
    Could you email me the list of DNS address for USA internet service providers ,Please, Iam a student doing a project on DNS servers
    Regards

  36. Remember that nothing is free – all these DNS servers, especially Google, will keep all your search history, IP address, timestamp, computer name, userid, etc – all stats on you and everything you search – forever in their database.

  37. US DNS:
    68.6.16.30
    68.8.16.30
    68.4.16.30

    OpenDNS:
    208.67.220.220
    208.67.222.220
    208.67.222.222

    Google DNS too low with me in Vietnam.

  38. @ Brad Peabody : Thanks for posting the new Level 3 resolvers.
    @ Vivek Gite : According to DNS Benchmark, the 4.2.2.* servers are owned by Level 3 Communications (www.level3.com). These are owned by NTT America (www.nttamerica.com) and might be interesting too :
    129.250.35.250
    129.250.35.251

  39. Switch Now!

    It’s quick and easy to change to Comodo Secure DNS. No downloads and it’s absolutely free.

    156.154.70.22
    156.154.71.22

  40. until today I used it as well. Then I had to do a translation of a word and tried to use google’s language tools. OpenDNS blocked the site. Switched my router back to the ISP’s DNS and it worked fine. – So that’s why I’m here – in search for a new DNS server.

  41. Also, DynDNS servers are reliable . . . not sure why they’re not on your primary list or in any of the extensive comments thus far:

    216.146.35.35
    216.146.36.36

    I believe OpenDNS was recently acquired by DynDNS, and my guess is the safety filter lists will be consolidated somehow.

  42. c:\nslookup 156.xxx.xxx.xxx (DNS Server IP address) you should get a DNS Server Name back with the IP address you query.

  43. Thanks, never heard about ScrubIt and DNSadvantage, I changed my computer settings to these nameservers: 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.3. All the best.

  44. I just did a test with over 150 name lookups to a large number of known public DNS servers. I tested both cached and uncached as well as invalid domains. Your results may vary, but this is what I found.

    Google’s DNS server where among the slowest in the group. Lookups took almost twice as long to resolve as OpenDNS.

    OpenDNS servers led the pack. In fact there was only one group of DNS servers that were faster.

    Time Warner Telecomm has the fasted servers hands down.
    64.129.67.101
    64.129.67.102
    64.129.67.103

    I use OpenDNS because I have a paid account and use the multiple tracked networks and the dashboard. I also use customized branded search pages for the invalid lookups and content filtering for the Ad networks and Phishing.

    If you don’t want or need these advanced features and you just want standard errors returned for invalid lookups, Time Warner does not mess with the responses and would make an excellent choice.

  45. you all need to go to http://www.grc.com and download a free program called DNS Benchmark which will test for the fastest free DNS available. Free DNS speeds and their reliability vary daily. A fast one today might be a slow one tomorrow. A live one today might be dead tomorrow. And so on.
    I use DNS Benchmark once per week, sometimes more if my computer starts to act slow. It is usually the DNS.

  46. Hey John C. Reid is Totally Right…This Is one of the fastest web-browsing experiences iHave ever seen…This DNS server is by-far way faster then the rest..THANK YOU John C. Reid for letting me know about this…iAm so happy :-)

  47. Correct;

    Time Warner Telecomm has the fasted servers hands down.
    64.129.67.101
    64.129.67.102
    64.129.67.103

    I have tried these on my servers and i think they offer the best result so far.

  48. Thanks for the info.I tried Google Dns Server a few days ago,but i noticed some problems with it,sometimes web pages cannot be loaded.and sometimes very slow.I tried Scrub-it,and for now I liked it very much.

  49. Yes U r Right. But to Find The best DNS server of your area . You should use Namebench a FREEWARE

  50. Like said by someone in a previous post,yesterday’s fast server is today’s slow one.Today I found that Scrub-it is not fast(I have said in my previous post that Scrub-it was that for that moment)

  51. You want to check out ScrubIt before adding them to your list. They filter out domains linked to pornography etc. according to their site. If you’re writing about public dns services you may want to mention that so that everyone can make an informed decision. I’m not too hot on Chinese democracy via DNS.

  52. Pinging Time Warner Telecomm servers led to the following results (where most others vary from 9 to 25ms)
    64.129.67.101 4 * time-out
    64.129.67.102 2 * time-out avg time success: 124ms
    64.129.67.103 3 * time-out time success: 144ms

    Thanks for all info, made me aware of the improvement attainable.

  53. Anyone using free dns or any other free/pay service should be reading the Terms/Use policy. It’s not the responsibility of the OP to do so.
    If they came here stupid, you can bet they’ll be leaving just as stupid.
    Sad, but true.

  54. hi. can u help.?

    192.168.1.1
    255.255.255.0
    192.168.1.2

    what the next
    in

    alternate DNS server =__________________?

    can you answer the blank line please…

    thanks.

  55. well everything depends on where you are.

    i am in thailand. and the local DNS is shit. cant acces Hotmail or facebook. but the local websites run fast and downloads with 400 kbs….. how the hell can i find a Chinese DNS or similar

  56. Hi Jasper I Think U can use these DNS’s if you like.

    203.138.71.154
    200.12.229.1

    Have a nice surfing time.

  57. We’ve used
    4.2.2.1
    4.2.2.2

    a lot and have always had good results with those settings. Try them. Verizon uses them too.

  58. Thanks for compiling the list. The scrubit were not pingable at the time when i tried but looks like i get the best roundtrip time with google nameservers. and they are very easy to remember as well.

  59. thia really worked at first…. i was using 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, but now my internet is just too slow, sometimes even fail to go thru/

    whats the problem as the switches and modem are new and fine,.

  60. 74.50.55.161 and 74.50.55.162 are my favorites, and they won’t hijack your connection like opendns

  61. I tried the symantec/norton dns 198.153.192.1 and 198.153.194.1, it gives me a B grade (very good) in my the ping test others only give me C (good) & D.

  64. you should fill the blank lines like this:

    Preferred DNS Server = 74.50.55.161
    Alternate DNS Server = 74.50.55.162

    or select any DNS pair provided above

  67. do we have to choose primary AND secondary IP from the same DNS or can we mix and match two different primary (for example mixing google and dnsadvantage 8.8.8.8 and 156.154.70.1)??? or would this be slower???

    thannksx

  68. Like ‘Rd’ post, when I too first found the google open dns, it seemed super fast. but not so much anymore.

  69. You can use any of them you want, depending on your operating system you could even use all of them, but I would recommend against that. I would tend to use the ones my ISP gives me, and then maybe one of the others.

    Hope that helps :)

  70. namebench is a good product !! now my internet connection is faster than before.. hahaha.. thank you guys !

  71. i have been looking around for a philippine open DNS server but havent found one…or anything i can use maybe coz my connection is super slow…thank you and id appreciate any help…

  72. in my country..the government had blocked facebook…
    we had used DNS..and signed in facebook sucessfully still yesterday,
    firewar had been updated..how can we sign in facebook again..anyone can help us,pls?
    help us pls?

  73. Google dns is the fastest one. I live in asia.

  74. Are free DNS trustful? I don’t speak about time response and availability of service, but about monitoring and saving logs of urls of each user to use them illegaly (sale of logs, privacity, etc)

  75. Ping statistics for 4.2.2.5:

    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 12ms, Maximum = 12ms, Average = 12ms

    thanks great list low pings!

  76. What you mean doesn’t work at all? It works man. Maybe your ISP doesn’t allow you to change your DNS. CMIIW

  77. firewall problem??? try this one i think it will help you a lot…. work only on firefox, try to type this key word “https everywhere” after that click the first website that will show and then try to add the free extension on your firefox and then activate it…. well done… happy browsing on any website with secure connection… :) im from philippines…:)

  78. guys i need help to open my facebook on my mobile again or any of my free websites they all blocked in cameroon please help

  79. Your own ISP knows any single thing you send through their DNS… in that matter a public DNS might be more “secure”.

  80. i changed my dns to google. browsing’s fine… but i need to speed up my torrent. how do i do that…???

  81. What is Google’s IPv6 DNS server address? I heard using their IPv6 site is supposed to be a lot faster.

  82. and what you think to you
    2nd google dns for your primary dns

    if everybody use primary google dns
    maybe the 2nd will be faster ;)

  83. Hey guys, I am pretty new to the GOOGLE dns stuff. I tried it and it works for the websites that has been blocked by my government.

    When I use the google DNS I can access the sites that has been blocked and I am able to download movie torrents from the sites, question is…what if I would like to download torrents and not be tracked…is there anyway I can do that? :)

  84. DNS 4.2.2.5
    alt Dns 4.2.2.2
    Works good for me! I live in Michigan and this was the fastest one. If anyone else knows of a faster DNS for Michigan please let me know thanks :)

  85. LOL norton is extremely safe ! I can surf all over the world without be afraid with virus or malware.. and google DNS is extremely fast !

  86. hi, i am using ntc gprs in nepal bt its speed is to slow . . .how can it b fast using DNS . . . .will it be secure for mobile. . ? . . Plz email me. . . .

  87. I have been working as a network security for the government for the last 17 years and so far, I still not feeling very comfortable with any form of bundle.
    For example, at home I have a router and then a firewall. Then antivirus on computers. If I get a DNS that is also a firewall and all that, then I will endup with redundant services that are translated into slowness because a packet must be canalized by one firewall after another.
    Today’s Internet is faster than as it was 10-15 years ago, I remember that a single T1 (1.544Mb/s) was more than enough for a large business. Now, with 22MB/s on my home internet connection it is fast as the T1 was few years ago. Why it is that?
    All ISPs and search engines are now collecting information about traffic and that information is used later for marketing, law enforcement etc. Almost every TCP/IP port is blocked by ISPs to prevent people from having their own web site and mail server so the email and information can be controlled easier from the top and in order for that to happen, they have to employ several firewalls, many are hidden by IP Tunel and some others are advertised as a features
    DNS information is managed and collected too, this is how some web sites from other countries are just not available from US but the information was very useful to get sexual predators etc
    After all these years, the amount of spam, child pornography and internet fraud is bigger than 10 years ago so what was the goal?
    Obviously the goal is control and surveillance – I am not worry about the FBI or CIA, they are good with protecting data and if the information were collected and manage just for them, the slowness would be minimum. I am worry about marketing and other things who keep data unprotected and available to spammers etc
    If you want to know where customers go so you can design a marketing strategy, the DNS is the best place for you a packet came from computer A to computer B. Now put that on a database and select everybody who is coming to computer B and it is located in the US. Computer B is the Washington Post then I can buy stocks on it and publish add in there
    I am not aware of any DNS or ISP who doesnt collect and manage data and connections but the one who do that on a very fast way is 4.2.2.1, 4.2.2.2
    So, if the goal is speed, you will have a better luck with these two

  88. anyone could help me what is the best DNS here in Phils i try all of the said DNS but when pinging it oftens request time out…:(

  89. What do u use….opera/firefox/or any others then this one….
    if u used firefox….try add-0n in the name : stealthy (search engine add-on)
    if u used other then firefox….platinum hide ip/free ip hider (search on google)

  90. hey do u know any free dns server that works in NEPAL ……my internet is too slow ,,.,email me.. help me plzzz

  91. The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:

    •2001:4860:4860::8888
    •2001:4860:4860::8844

  92. You all should use google namebench to find best server for your broadband and put them as:

    DNS1 : The fastest server
    DNS2 : Second fastest server
    DNS : Use your own ISP DNS (incase if DNS1 and DNS2 servers are down).

    Thanks – Hope this helps.

  93. 75.75.76.76 anycast works, but only if you’re on Comcast. It invariably works much better than the ones your comcast modem gets from it’s upstream headend.

    I recommend using Google Namebench to compare all of these DNS servers lookup times, and not just ping times, as different networks get different DNS resolution times.

    A server can have a great ping time but still be unreliable or slow at DNS lookups.

  94. There’s a little secret to fast dns server.

    Look at the the whois records for the largest isp’s in your country.

    Then attempt to to nslookups with each of them.

    You’ll find one’s that are very fast and don’t have aren’t nearly as heavily used as the public and easy to use remember ones.

  95. The DNS riddle, is what is the best way to point a domain to a web host? You create a name server, that point to specific IP adress, correct?

    So how does saying using an IP adress like Google’s 8.8.8.8 get your domain to point to the IP adress of the host?

  96. It is preference to try it out, and we can experience another extraordinary faster loading , Thanks

  97. I’ve been using google’s and openDNS.. works fine. Perhaps you can use your internet service provider dns as last option

  98. Yes, absolutely true. I’ve tried Google DNS but later did I realize that not switching to OpenDNS was a mistake.

  99. opendns is the best i have ever used since i was a kid, but hate them now and they provide colleges with options to block websites.

  100. HEY, i am living in USA and i have a playstion 3.. and when i try to get online it either says .. “the attempt to obtain the IP adress timed out” .. or ” DNS error 80710102 or something like that… now when i try to make my adress settings all automatic it says IP adress timed out/… then when i go to custom, wirless and all that i go to manual on adress settings and i type my IP adress and all that stuff… when i test my connection it says “IP adress succeded but there is a DNS error 80710102.. NOW WHEN THAT HAPPENS I WANT TO KILL SOMEBODY… NOW ALL I AM ASKING IS FOR SOMEONE TO HELP ME OUT WITH THIS…

    Thanks,
    A VERY pissed gamer… ^_^

  101. is it working for all countries if that right that is not working for me i’m from egypt and when i tried to make this it slown down my speed my regular download speed is 50-65 kb/s with this trick 30-33 kbs…!!!!!!!!!
    excuse me for my bad english

  102. I am in cebu philippines and this is what speeds i am getting

    390 ms Service provider: Google
    197 ms Dnsadvantage
    90 ms OpenDNS
    229 ms Norton
    202 ms GTEI DNS (now Verizon)
    timed out ScrubIt

  103. the best why to find which one is the best open run open cmd and ping one by one the best one is which one has the list ping time for example the best one for me is 4.2.2.1 (but I use my own win server dns server)

  104. please i need dns server and win server adderss that can work with motorola surf 5101 cable modem,or how can i go about it, to make it work thanks.

  105. Mine was doing the same. I noticed I had my DNs on manual but right as soon as I put it on auto 8080 came up and all was good.

  106. That configuration only tests performance from Googles servers to the DNS server you tell it to test. Google is not in your PC….

  107. Hi

    8.8.4.4

    and it work fine and great. I can access many site, including porn site :)

  110. Correction to your post:

    => Service provider: GTEI DNS (now Verizon)

    Should read

    => Service provider: GTEI DNS (now Level 3)

  111. the best way (not why) to find which one is the best open run open cmd and ping one by one the best one is which one has the least (not list) ping time for example the best one for me is 4.2.2.1 (but I use my own win server dns server)

  112. That will be kinda hard because I use to live at the philipines too,you tube there is very bad it buffers too much and gets kinda annoying.

  113. Hey guys I found these DNS servers
    Its airtel broadband dns servers but it works for me
    202.56.215.54
    202.56.215.55

  114. I am living in Nigeria and am using MTN. Please could give me DNS servers I can you. Thank you for your efforts.

  115. Hello Guys,
    i was using my ISP dns server but due to problems in resloving certain website especially apple.com and others, i hve now result to using open or public dns.
    I want to know is there is any security issue using public dns.
    Please advice.
    Thnkz.

  116. That’s a misguided perspective. Just because you’re looking up WHOIS on an ISP’s domain name (and most if not all ISPs have many domain names) doesn’t mean the authoritative nameservers for the domain name are public. Nor are an ISP’s DNS servers provided for customer use likely to be the same as those which are listed as authoritative for whatever domain name you might associate with the ISP.

  117. I concur. Google DNS is great for 2 reasons:
    1) very fast, consistent, and always sane acting (respect TTLs, etc).
    2) if a name isn’t found it responds properly with an NXDOMAIN rather than the IP of a webserver that tells you so. OpenDNS and many ISPs will do so, and it’s very annoying (apparently these people forgot that DNS is used for more than just HTTP!).

    So I highly suggest Google DNS above all others. Especially those automatically provided by your ISP -typically, those are the worst.

  118. using this dns detail, and modem sim900d, how can i access many site and transfer data.?
    plz help me

  119. hey ,for all other countries ,Use Namebench It Find The Best DNS Server Around Your Location
    http://code.google.com/p/namebench/ Download It & Choose What Your OS Running.

    Another Tip:
    If You Using Modem ,Make A Parabolic Reflector
    Speed Up Your Internet Up To 300% PR + 200% DNS =500%
    SOFTWARE+HARDWARE
    Remember It’s About Your Location

  120. Google DNS resolved the slow browse n no browse issues and enhanced the browsing experienced also. Appreciated!

  121. Can anyone please suggest a Dns Server for me? I live in Oregon/California. Thanks in advance. :)

  122. Ok guys this will solve everything.
    i wont post the link here as i dont know the rules but do a google search for:
    NAMEBENCH

    it will looks for the FASTEST DNS server for YOUR connection.

    enjoy.

  123. To find the ‘fastest’ DNS server, I recommend that you give Google’s 20% project ‘namebench’ a try.

  124. There is no single best DNS server, it is often contingent upon your location and ISP… I suggest that you give Google’s 20% project ‘namebench’ a try, make sure to add as many DNS servers to the list as possible when testing.

  125. You are completely incorrect about that assertion. First, where did you get that information? Second, did you even use the application? Third, since it is obvious that you have not even tried the application before saying something so ridiculous, you would find that (Had you used the application, or even gone to the namebench website, http://code.google.com/p/namebench/) after completing the DNS benchmark, you would find that it includes many DIFFERENT DNS servers, such as OpenDNS, AT&T’s DNS (Now Verizon I believe), UltraDNS, DynDNS, Sprint, izoom, etc. etc.

    So next time, I strongly urge you to do research, otherwise you are simply spreading misinformation that is not at all helpful to anyone. It just takes a little bit of effort to help others, I am really disappointed that a person might do something that is the exact opposite of helping.

    I do apologize for being so brash, but I put a lot of effort into helping others, and when I find someone doing the exact opposite, it is thoroughly disappointing. I mean, if you do not know something, simply refrain from commenting… Right?

  126. Hi
    i leave in South Africa and using Telkom internet ADSL, i need to know the fastest DNS setting for quick buffering and downloads, esp Youtube

  127. Let me know how can I check the history of my hosts free of cost. I will be very much thankful for this.

  128. First, I’d like to Vivek Gite for the list of public name resolvers.

    I was using Google, but today they are returning bad data for al Jazeera:

    I've also heard Google does not honor the TTL (time to live) specified by domain owners, which means Google would be slow to update changes. This sacrifices accuracy for speed. Of course, their getting it completely wrong, as above, is a different error.

    So, I switched to Level 3 (shown as GTEI in the list here). Much better. I'm in the USA, so there may be better choices elsewhere. You can use traceroute to check the locations of the servers you get from your particular site…

  132. Had the same problem with my ps3. Figured out you have to keep the IP addy on automatic, while manually setting the dns… which you can do on custom settings (and set the rest of the other stuff on auto too). Found the same thing on my PC too.

  133. I need to register domain name. Anyone can tell me how can i purchase this and which one is the best. I am from India.

  134. Wow. I entered all of them. On my iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, and 2 macs. I damn hope it’s gonna be fast…

  135. Try with Open DNS 208.67.222.222 (primary), 208.67.220.220 (secondary).

    But if you wish to open .xxx site :D … try using 8.8.8.8 (primary), 8.8.4.4 (secondary). Works great!

  136. I doubt that the country has all that much to do with the buffering encountered.
    How much buffering do you think you’d get listening to an internet radio @ 128 kbps on a dial-up connection @ 56 kbps. Get the best available that you can afford, and enjoy it!!

  137. I reely wont to be a server and if you dont let me have a server i will be vary mad and i wont to be Host!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
