Open DNS, speed, security and Web filtering using DNS

Open DNS, speed, security and Web filtering using DNS
4.6 (80) 92.75%

Today we discuss the DNS, a system that helps us to replace the IPs of domain names so instead of 188.215.51.197, which is an IP, our site is named videotutorial.ro and you do not have to remember IP That's ugly.
Stores the IP addresses of DNS servers and associated websites, so things seem much simpler and have a more personal side. Why do I say "Welcome to 188.215.51.197, I am Christ ...." weird!
Each provider must have one or more DNS servers, unfortunately they do not always work as it should and so also we, the end users have to suffer.
To avoid disappointment, we can use public DNS sites such as:
Google DNS
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4
OpenDNS
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
DNS public are much better because it offers stability, security and speed. Behind them are dozens / hundreds, maybe even thousands of servers, organized in clusters smooth functioning of the public service.
DNS addresses above can be used simply, just enter them in the settings of the network card or router and ready.
For additional functions we can make an account at one of the public DNS providers, we chose OpenDNS.
OpenDNS account you have plenty of options such as:
Support for dynamic IP
Web filtering (adult content, drugs, violence, weapons, etc.)
Filtering for individual fields
Individual exclusion from filtering
Security anti malware, phishing, etc.
Statistics
A service like OpenDNS can only help us, especially if we consider that there is a software that runs on local, do not consume resources and additional settings are available for all devices connected to the router, regardless of operating system or platform.

    I understand that Microsft provides DNS like OpenDNS, right?

    • From what I know, Microsoft does not offer such a service. Other more secure DNS services are offered by Norton dns.norton.com / dnsweb / huConfigurePc.do and Comodo comodo.com / secure-dns

    no tutorial on this top see you in a search box (tutorials)
    just write what you're interested and you'll find the tutorial called dyn dns park
    is carried out for a long time

  17. Christ, as it is better to leave the battery in the laptop while it's plugged in or not?
    Congratulations tutorials!

    • power cable goes directly to the battery ... so if you put it lose power!
      to prolong the battery lifetime, it is recommended to respect the cycles .... loading / unloading .... ie using laptop necablat outlet until the moment when the battery is close to zero: then turn the power!

    You can use DynDNS, a service that is not related to Google DNS or OpenDNS.
    We have several tutorials on the subject.
    The new D-Link is the ddns.
    Using services like DynDNS, you can do so using a domain name instead of IP, the update is done automatically in the router or on the desktop (with a client) when the IP changes.

    I know of your ISP's DNS servers are faster internet than Google's or OpenDNS public, there are some programs that test this.

    Surfer: I know of your ISP's DNS servers are faster internet than Google's or OpenDNS public, there are some programs that test this.

    You're right. We tested in cmd, ping the google.ro before dealing the DNS changes and I 14 milliseconds "average", and after I put the Google DNS (8.8.8.8 ...), rose to 18 milliseconds . The conclusion is that I will go back on RDS's DNS because it's the fastest, in my case. Funny thing is that I ping the 2 videotutorial.ro milliseconds. That those who say heavy loading site.

    Cristi Hello!
    I followed the tutorial 2 times but I could not understand a chestie.Daca not install the client from opendns.com and have dynamic ip + router, the router knows how to make updates when changing ip? We also need an area (like tutorials with DynDNS)? And this area to make settings in router?
    Thank you!

    Hello Cristi! very interesting tutorial! I use two different DNS one of my ISP and one of the Level 3 U.S. and configuration works well enough. what do the DNS Benchmark application available at: https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm ? I want to go with a more advanced tutorial as you said about the CNAME and other stuff related to DNS and hosting!

The conclusion is that I will go back on RDS-enabled DNS for the fastest, in my case. Funny thing is that I ping the 2 videotutorial.ro milliseconds. That those who say heavy loading site.

    Not always public DNS are the fastest, but if you were to do a test on a longer period we see that public DNS serious hardware resource contention will be the most consistent and that's what matters most.
    I'm glad you noticed that we ping.

    see that you are off-topic!
    on your request, you have to make your account, choose a method of payment (VISA or PayPal) to choose goods, quantity, to agree to their terms, give them your shipping address and accept payment!
    is so simple that you do not need tutorials .....

    Welcome. I need help, use OpenDNS recently and now I do not let it go even Facebook or Gmail. I do not remember to have introduced these sites "blacklist" and I can not do anything. Absolutely nothing. I would like to uninstall OpenDNS, but do not find anywhere, that I know it's not a program itself and do not know how I could get rid of it or delete from the "blacklist" your Gmail and other sites harmless. If anyone can help with advice on steps empirically, I'd be grateful. I net the UPC cable.
