Google Public DNS Service

As we reported already about the alternative OpenDNS solution, here a brand new service from Google. Google Public DNS Service.

Those of you experiencing DNS issues or have trouble using OpenDNS, give these a try:

Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

The DNS protocol is an important part of the web’s infrastructure, serving as the Internet’s “phone book”. Every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup. Complex pages often require multiple DNS lookups before they complete loading. As a result, the average Internet user performs hundreds of DNS lookups each day, that collectively can slow down his or her browsing experience.

All detail informations about the DNS service you will find here.
