Increase internet speed using DNS


On my last post, I have shown how to speed up browsing experience by tweaking up various system parameters according to the bandwidth your internet service provider serves you. Here I will show you how to minimise website responce time by making use of free DNS services.

According to Wikipedia, The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. Most prominently, it translates easily memorized domain names to the numerical IP addresses needed for the purpose of locating computer services and devices worldwide. By providing a worldwide, distributed keyword-based redirection service, the Domain Name System is an essential component of the functionality of the Internet.
