Google DNS vs OpenDNS vs ISP DNS - Page 5

OpenDNS all the way.
Actually, thank you. You got me to do a bit more investigating, and now I know I won't bother switching to OpenDNS.

My favorite part of this (more than the question) is the first answer, and some of the comments about the author of DNSCrypt. Read on:
http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/45770/if-dnssec-is-so-questionable-why-is-it-ahead-of-dnscurve-in-adoption

Further, ICANN publicly stated DNSCrypt will never be used on the DNS root zones:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOGezLjlzFU&feature=youtu.be&t=44m55s

Meaning, the answers OpenDNS gives you may be encrypted between you and OpenDNS, but that in no way means OpenDNS gave you the correct answer. As is stated in various comments about DNSCrypt, unless it undergoes massive changes, it will never be fully adopted by major DNS providers or root zones.

THAT is why I use Google's DNS. wink.gif

My own, which has ad networks, trackers and known dodgy domains blacklisted. I then fallback on BT for any recursive lookups. Though I'm thinking of switching recursive fetches to Level 3.

I have never used DNS before, I just used OPENDNS first time ever, and tested and it did state OpenDNS was working. Well anyways, I can report that going to websites and such is much faster than it used to be.

Suck it ATT DNS. rolleyes.gif

I used a DNS benchmark and found the fastest servers in my area and then tested out a few and found which one i liked best https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm

This thread is quite old, but what the story today, comparing these two (OP) public DNS services?
I mean, is there any noticeable lookup speed OpenDNS versus GoogleDNS? Late opinions matter, please.
post #48 of 50
Depends on what you're doing. OpenDNS has controls for filtering and can restrict things like known botnet FQDNs and similar, whereas the Google DNS side just provides replies/resolution without any additional features.

Speed wise they are generally comparable and are similarly anycasted out to somewhere vaguely near you.

standard ISP DNS tends to suck big time. i have not end of issue with Virgin Media.

Google DNS is good dont get me wrong, but most network guy in the world always tests "ping 8.8.8.8" first to check network connectivity.

OpenDNS is great, you can get free Adult content filters as well.

I find some of the sites I visit take longer on OpenDNS than on google. I just switched back to google last week. More than likely just in my head, but they seem to come up noticeably faster now.
