Google on Friday launched a new service called Google Public DNS. As the name suggests, it is a Domain Name System (DNS) resolving service that will use Google’s infrastructure to improve page loading time. The primary goal of Google Public DNS is to provide end users with an alternative to their current DNS service.
"We built Google Public DNS to make the web faster and to retain as little information about usage as we could, while still being able to detect and fix problems," Google says.
Besides providing end users an alternative DNS service, Google Public DNS also aims to help reduce the load on ISPs’ DNS servers by taking advantage of their global data-center and caching infrastructure. Google Public DNS implements a number of security, performance, and compliance improvements, which is expected to help make the web faster and more secure.
Right now, I am testing Google Public DNS and trying to compare it with my previous DNS service – OpenDNS. Till now, no difference in performance. But I must that Google Public DNS works. If you are a Google fan, I am sure that you’d love to try it. Try it today by changing your DNS server addresses to the following IP addresses – 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
