How to Enjoy the New Web Speed Boost from Google DNS and OpenDNS

Posted by aamir khan


If you use Google's Public DNS server or OpenDNS as your DNS server, you may notice starting today that YouTube videos load faster and other web content comes in quicker. If you're using your ISP's DNS server as the default, now's a good time to try Google's or OpenDNS. The reason behind the speed bump is that OpenDNS and Google are working with Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to attach location data to the DNS requests, so when you request a web page, it will go to a server near you rather than, as previously mentioned possibly a server that's not closest to you.
This Global Internet Speedup effort so far includes Google and Open DNS and a few ISPs and CDNs, but not the biggest players yet like Akamai.
Set up your system to use a faster DNS: To use Google's Public DNS service or OpenDNS, you'll need to configure your router or computer to use their DNS servers addresses. Here are instructions for Google Public DNS and help for OpenDNS. With OpenDNS, you'll also get additional services like malware detection, stats, and more, in addition to the speed boost.
