Knowing DNS

Domain Name System (DNS) plays important role when you type any url address like to easily remember and know. This url name is translated into numeric IP address so that web servers and internet routers can understand. We have different service providers, each have their own DNS Server. But not all DNS servers are fast and you may not be able to access all websites properly using DNS provided by your service provider. Switching to new faster DNS can can give you faster and more accessible option for browsing websites. Most common alternate DNS servers are OpenDNS and Google Public DNS.

DNS settings with DNS Jumper

You can download free portable DNS Jumper application. DNS Jumper can increase your internet browsing speed, improve security, easily access blocked sites or you can use Family safe DNS to block unwanted sites. Its easy to change settings with a click. You can choose from the list of DNS from drop-down menu list and even restore your default settings.

You can also try and download another free utility namebench. Here also you can choose from the list of different DNS settings including your own default settings. Check to see any difference in your browsing speed and website access. Again it is also possible that your default DNS speed is fastest and you do not need to change your DNS but if not you can always change your DNS setting to faster though it will not guarantee you very high speed but certainly you will find and detect some difference.
