Hi All

Has anyone had any experience with Free DNS? What do you think about using it? Seems ever since my ISP taken over by a different company, my web pages seem to load slower. Paying for the same connection speed with the new ISP. If I use Speakeasy shows down and upload speeds are ok. Wondering if it could be the way there DNS is set up. Just a thought.

Thanks, Doug

I've heard about this too. The way it works makes sense that it would be faster, so I think for you it would be worth a try. The only warning I would give is it might temporarily mess with things a bit. I have tried OpenDNS and it seemed okay, but I could not determine any speed increase because it made logging into my router very weird. When I logged into it, the page was all jumbled up, like a poorly made website. I have no clue why this happened, but if you don't have a Linksys router or don't plan on using OpenDNS then it won't be a problem for you. I think OpenDNS would be a good try though because it seems fairly popular.

you could also use google DNS if all you're looking for is an external DNS source. it's usually a pretty good bet that google knows where any one website is at any given point in time.
