Free & Public DNS Servers (Updated November 2015)

Your ISP automatically assigns DNS servers when your router or computer connects to the Internet via Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)... but you don't have to use those.

But what if those ISP-provided DNS servers aren't reliable or you're troubleshooting an issue and you suspect that DNS might not be working properly?

NOTE: Primary DNS servers are sometimes called preferred DNS servers and secondary DNS servers are sometimes called alternate DNS servers. Primary and secondary DNS servers can be "mixed and matched" to provide another layer of redundancy.

To use Google Public DNS, you need to explicitly change the DNS settings in your operating system or device to use the Google Public DNS IP addresses. The procedure for changing your DNS settings varies according to operating system and version (Windows, Mac or Linux) or the device (computer, phone, or router). We give general procedures here that might not apply for your OS or device; please consult your vendor documentation for authoritative information.

Change your DNS servers settings

Because the instructions differ between different versions/releases of each operating system, we only give one version as an example. If you need specific instructions for your operating system/version, please consult your vendor's documentation.

Many systems allow you to specify multiple DNS servers, to be contacted in a priority order. In the following instructions, we provide steps to specify only the Google Public DNS servers as the primary and secondary servers, to ensure that your setup will correctly use Google Public DNS in all cases.

You can configure Google Public DNS addresses for either IPv4 or IPv6 connections, or both.

You can apply this directly on your PC or Router 

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:

The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:



You can use either address as your primary or secondary DNS server. You can specify both addresses, but do not specify one address as both primary and secondary.
Below are free DNS servers you can use instead of the ones assigned, the best and most reliable of which, from the likes of Google and OpenDNS, you can find below:

 Why Use Different DNS Servers?

One reason you might want to change from the DNS servers assigned by your ISP is if you suspect there's a problem with the ones you're using now.

  An easy way to test for a DNS server issue is by typing a website's IP address into the browser. If you can reach the website with the IP address, but not the name, then the DNS server is likely having issues.

Or Press Windows Logo + R   type "Ping space Your DNS space -t" then press Enter you will see the  Reply of your DNS. If there is something worng with your Internet you will receive Request Time Out reply

Another reason to change DNS servers is if you're looking for a better performing service. Many people complain that their ISP-maintained DNS servers are sluggish and contribute to a slower overall browsing experience.

Yet another, increasingly common reason to use DNS servers from a third party is to prevent logging of your web activity and to circumvent the blocking of certain websites.
