How to use google Public DNS in windows
As I mentioned in my previous post how to backup google account data that google is providing lots of rich services and products to the user of google. Just like them google also provides a service known as Public DNS of google. Google has launched this service in last year but I used it yesterday. I didn’t find it so much use full but yes it’s little effects your browsing speed.
What is DNS: : A DNS is stands for Domain Name Server. This DNS mainly converts the site address into the ip address of the website every website on the net has a 12 digit number (known as ip address) that our pc needs to access the website. When we type a website in a browser our computer sends a query to DNS server and then DNS server reports the ip address of the website to the system and system initiate the connection with the site you requested. This all happen automatically and you don’t need to have any deep knowledge about DNS.
Advantages of Google DNS according to google:
Provide end users with an alternative to their current DNS service. Google Public DNS takes some new approaches that we believe offer more valid results, increased security, and, in most cases, better performance. It helps to reduce the load on ISPs’ DNS servers. By taking advantage of our global data-center and caching infrastructure, we can directly serve large numbers of user requests without having to query other DNS resolvers. also helps to make the web faster and more secure this service to test some new ways to approach DNS-related challenges. We hope to share what we learn with developers of DNS resolvers and the broader web community and get their feedback.
