Free Fastest Public DNS Servers To Boost Browsing Speed Experience [ Updated: January 2015 ]

Without DNS we REALLY need to memorize all boring-complicated numeric IP addresses, instead of using hostnames like mabzicle.com — you need to type in the address of: 192.31.186.146! And doing such could make our brain about to explode..well...not really though!... Good thing, we don't need a high brain capacity to memorize all these numbers. Instead, we are more convenient to remember and familiar by using mere hostnames (i.e. mabzicle.com).

Oh Wait! DNS is not only use for it — it is also use in browsing/surfing experience. I don't think you have the patience to wait these too slow loading websites —that is, will in effect — gets you frustrated! However, with these FREE PUBLIC DNS servers,  you will have the change to experience great browsing speed experience. Is it cool right? But how?

Before we jumpstart to the DNS broad topic, we should know some little details about it.

DNS (Domain Name System)
DNS (Domain Name System)
What is DNS?
DNS (Domain Name System) - is a database of domain names for easier look up with its IP address. To illustrate, DNS is like a phone book for the Internet Domain Address in which it is HUMAN-Friendly to translate it to an IP Address that computer understand well. For a short note: Computer reads only 0 and 1, that is binary system. Thanks to DNS we don't need those massive numbers.

For example:
  • mabzicle.com(domain name) translated to ip address 192.31.186.146!
Unlike phone book, DNS quickly updates its database that whenever it has a network change it does not affect and notice end uses.

Example:
  • for mabzicle.com, you are not aware the change of its ip address. Because you can still access it without noticing it does change its ip address.
Dont worry, when you connect to your Modem, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) already assigns network configuration to you including dns servers.
How to check your DNS server?
With Command Prompt, you can display your network settings.
These are the steps: (note: i tested only in ipv4)
  1. click start, then type cmd to open command prompt
  2. In your command prompt black window, type this command: ipconfig /all it displays all ip configuration in your system.
