Open DNS, speed, security and Web filtering using DNS

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.
DNS servers store IP addresses and associated sites, so things seem much simpler and have a more personal side. How about I say "Welcome on 188.215.51.197, I'm Cristi….", A bit strange!
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.

    Hi, I also tried the settings and they didn't work out. Maybe I missed something. I have the same router as yours but I have a dynamic ip. At Network> WAN> Advanced> check “Use the following DNS Servers” and at Primary DNS: and Secondary DNS: pass the 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 ip right? I saved and tested with a site blocked by me on OpenDNS and I can access it…, I waited more than 3 minutes. What's wrong?

    • Stefan said

      … I succeeded. It seems that the settings written by me above work but I have a doubt. I know that I used a user and pass on the router to update the ip on the dns server, but in this case where do I use the user in the router? In the menu from the router to "Dynamic DNS" to Service Provider: I do not have OpenDNS. How do I solve the problem? I would not like to install the OpenDNS software on my PC. ip update.

    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

    f good and useful your new tutorial and I need to complement your part for me to solve my problem, if you can!
    accept and opinions community!
    So I'm part of a tenants association and we decided to mount a surveillance system composed of video cameras and the possibility 16 monitoring via net site!
    the problem of these situations is related to that IP which must be static… .that is fixed… ..not to keep changing… .the solution is to buy a bussines subscription from rds, with static IP, or something like that you recommend you now… I think!
    I confirm me please if you have shown you now fit in our case!
    thank you in advance.
    Enjoy!

    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!

    • the power cord goes directly into the battery… so if you take it out you lose the power !!!
      in order to prolong the battery life, it is recommended to respect the cycles… .charging / discharging… .that is, use the laptop not wired to the socket, until the battery is close to zero: then recharge with electricity!

  18. Costelina: No tutorial on this top see you in a search box (tutorials) just write what you're interested and you'll find dyn dns tutorial called long if it is done

    thanks for the advice: I searched for "dyn dns" and found some things that I don't think are related to my problem: subdomains, dynamic ip,….
    I want to know, as I initially asked, if this tutorial can solve my problem!… partially or totally….
    that is, who is able to answer the topic and wants to say whether or not… or in what way, in 2-3 words!
    for me it will be the starting point and it is clear that I am starting to take the related tutorials in turn…
    thank you!

    • dyn dns you sign on there and then enter the surveillance system configuration and put username and password dyndns.ar you have to defend it's online dns and then you go and you can see the net supravegherea.merge only with IE or the I'm just a little so I did and ActiveX on.sper make it!

    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.

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

  23. I am by default in rooter second DNS. If you are replacing with the OpenDNS has some?

    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 are right. I tested in cmd, the ping at google.ro before making the changes to the DNS and I had 14 milliseconds "average", and after I put the DNS from Google (8.8.8.8…), it increased to 18 milliseconds. The conclusion is that I will switch back to the RDS DNS because it is the fastest, in my case. The culmination is that I have been pinging with videotutorial.ro for 2 milliseconds. This is for those who say that the site is loaded hard.

    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!

  29. Stefan B: You're right. We tested in cmd, ping the google.roinainte to dealing lia 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-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.

    Hello Cristian,

    I recently installed Linux Mint 15 and as I don't know so well… .I deleted Win XP (I couldn't install EasyBCD), then I wanted to delete Linux but I don't know how to get rid of GRUB that I can reinstall Windows. What the hell did I do here that I don't know anymore ??? Maybe you can help me (now I'm on Linux but I can't see tutorials) how to properly delete linux and reinstall XP. That's how it eats you. I personally like it but what do I do with the little ones, that they drove me crazy with games and how the PC is not so new I return to XP.
    Thanks and wait for a response from you.
    All the best,

  37. Hello. I need help - I recently used OpenDNS and now it doesn't even let me enter Facebook or Gmail. I don't remember putting these sites on the "blacklist" and I can't do anything about it. Nothing at all. I would like to uninstall OpenDNS, but I can't find it anywhere, meaning I know it's not a program in itself and I don't know how I could get rid of it or delete Gmail and other sites from the "blacklist" harmless. If anyone can help me, with tips on the old steps, I would be grateful. I have a net from UPC, on cable.
