[How-To] Change DNS Servers for Fast Internet Speed


Many of the internet surfers (I should call them “Netizens” rather) most commonly, are not satisfied with their current internet connection speed. They are always in search of some tricks and tweaks to increase their internet connection speed. Most tweaks found on internet either works partially or don’t work at all, which lead to frustration and waste of the time. So, to save the time and also to save you from such embarrassment. here I’ve come up with a small trick that will increase your internet connection speed a bit.
The most useful tool for the whole internet establishment is the DNS server (Domain Name Server). Without it the internet is not possible. It is used every time you type and hit enter in your browser address bar. The DNS server is used to convert the normal website address to the IP address with the help of it’s directory in which, the  IP address are stored for the websites all around the web. Moreover, due to its usefulness and functionality, it also can be used to increase your internet speed. More fast the DNS server is, the more time you save which results in increase of your browsing speed.
Most of the ISPs (Internet Service Providers), use their own DNS server for more reliability and security. But if you are not satisfied with your ISP’s DNS server, you may use this trick.
To be precise, there are two tricks for it.
  1. Using open DNS Server (e.g Google DNS or OpenDNS)
  2. Using local DNS Server on your computer
Using open DNS Server

First, i will tell you about the Google Open DNS Server. their IP addresses are as following
  • 8.8.8.8
