OpenDNS for me here (started using it when o2/be there had really poor dns servers, down and really slow, it is worth creating account so you can then customise using shortcuts.

You can delete your data at anytime.

I mean people can use your nameservers to resolve their dns.
not the best thing you want to happen.

What I mean, don't use recursive dns servers as nameservers (msdns is that by default, but you can switch it off)

you can use the Microsoft DNS service for that.
install it from the control panel and configure it according to your needs.

Hello Guys,
I am currently have issues that my server resolves DNS very slow like 10-20secs to enter an web page, i am running Windows as OS

Right now i configured google DNS but it seems that this didn't help me so much,

What dns servers should i use to improve the situation ?


Thanks in advance,
Dima.
