OpenDNS is a popular and reliable way to analyze your networks DNS queries while also managing and filtering requests on sent to the internet from the local network. OpenDNS has a dashboard which lets you filter sites in specific categories so users on your network can not access those content. With managing your filters, OpenDNS also can detect if botnets are running on your network and alert you.
OpenDNS normally provides 2 IP for public usage. These are:
But there are alternative IP’s you can use to still be able to use OpenDNS services. These can be under less load as they aren’t public during peak hours. However, it is not certain that these IPs are better and faster that the public IP provided.
So here they are:
188.8.131.52 resolver1.opendns.com 184.108.40.206 resolver2.opendns.com 220.127.116.11 resolver3.opendns.com 18.104.22.168 resolver4.opendns.com 22.214.171.124 resolver1-fs.opendns.com 126.96.36.199 resolver2-fs.opendns.com
So, that’s it. Add them, and check if they are faster by pinging them. Let us know what you think in the comments.
