List of public DNS servers

Domain name resolution is a necessity, some providers are better than others that’s the reason why I keep a list of public DNS servers mostly for testing. The list includes the IP addresses for two public DNS providers (Level3 Communications and OpenDNS), use their services at your own discretion.

Level 3 Communications

4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
4.2.2.4
4.2.2.5
4.2.2.6

Google DNS

  8.8.8.8
  8.8.4.4

OpenDNS

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

There are more public DNS providers, but I rarely use them.

    I would suggest you to try Google Public DNS, because of no redirection that can speed up browsing experience, no filtering and no blocking.
