    Dear Vivek,

    Thanks for the above information. My Domino was misbehaving as my ISP DNS was not working.

    I have changed it now and its working fine now.
    I am currently working with Shree Cement (at Rajasthan) in the capacity of System Administrator.

    Looking forward to meet you sometime in Pune.

    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.

  • vivek Jul 14, 2008, 4:25 pm


    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.

  • elQuique Jul 22, 2008, 8:43 am

    Yooowwwww!! works fantastic!! the 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…

  • Lightning Nov 6, 2008, 6:59 am

    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 ?

  • Chuck Nice Jan 24, 2009, 12:57 am

    Chuck Nasty is badly mis-informed. If the mentioned DNS Server IP addresses were for DNS root name servers, they wouldn’t even perform DNS lookups. The root name server function is to publish the contents of the root zone file.

    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?

    “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.

    I’ve been trying to connect to (and associated sites like 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 successfully!


  • Bloodsong Oct 10, 2009, 7:23 pm

    Quick check tells me that and 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.

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

  • John C. Reid Mar 11, 2010, 3:07 am

    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.

    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.

  • Jose Mar 14, 2010, 9:17 pm

    you all need to go to 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.

    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)

  • Xenophon Apr 23, 2010, 4:19 am

    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.

  • anonymous Oct 2, 2011, 10:48 pm

    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,
    So, if the goal is speed, you will have a better luck with these two

    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.

  • Justin G Feb 11, 2012, 5:16 am

    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.

    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 get your domain to point to the IP adress of the host?

    I want to know is there is any security issue using public dns.
    Please advice.

  • $am33ra Jul 16, 2012, 11:03 am

    google DNS is more faster yhan others…

  • Dan Jul 18, 2012, 9:08 pm

    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.

  • Dan Jul 18, 2012, 9:11 pm

    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.

    Speed Up Your Internet Up To 300% PR + 200% DNS =500%
    Remember It’s About Your Location

    i wont post the link here as i dont know the rules but do a google search for:

  • Jacob Aug 14, 2012, 2:43 pm

    For those of you wondering what ‘the fastest’ DNS server is, I recommend that you give the Google 20% app Namebench ( a try. I have always found that it gives me a 10-60% increase over my ISP default DNS servers.

  • Jacob Aug 14, 2012, 2:44 pm

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

  • Jacob Aug 14, 2012, 2:46 pm

    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.

  • Jacob Aug 14, 2012, 2:54 pm

    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, 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?

  • Jacob Aug 14, 2012, 2:55 pm

    Try using the Google 20% project namebench:

  • Billy Y.. Sep 5, 2012, 12:12 am

    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:

    ; <> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <>
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 22492
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

    ; IN A


    ;; Query time: 43 msec
    ;; SERVER:
    ;; WHEN: Tue Sep 4 12:59:50 [-0700] 2012
    ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 101

    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…

    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.
