    The most basic task of DNS is to translate hostnames such as theos.in to IP address such as 74.86.49.131. In very simple terms, it can be compared to a phone book. DNS also has other important use such as email routing.

    This is my list of better, fast public dns servers and free dns server (as compare to your ISP / DSL / ADSL / cable DNS service providers dns servers). These dns servers are free to all. I was able to improve my browsing speed with following DNS servers. Use any one of the following provider.
    Free Public DNS Server

    Service provider: ScrubIt
    Public dns server address:

    * 67.138.54.100
    * 207.225.209.66

    Service provider:dnsadvantage
    Dnsadvantage free dns server list:

    * 156.154.70.1
    * 156.154.71.1

    Service provider:OpenDNS
    OpenDNS free dns server list:

    * 208.67.222.222
    * 208.67.220.220

    Service provider: vnsc-pri.sys.gtei.net
    Public Name server IP address:

    * 4.2.2.1
    * 4.2.2.2
    * 4.2.2.3
    * 4.2.2.4
    * 4.2.2.5
    * 4.2.2.6

    Best Option is OpenDNS which is more secure and more reliable.

    another option is to use a DNS name-caching server like Treewalk. it speeds up ur nslookups and caches it more efficiently than ur ISP's dns servers. here is the link to Treewalk What can TreeWalk do?
