    :)Hi Guys,

    I saw hundreds of thousand threads and blogs on internet about Which is fastest and reliable DNS for broadband?

    So, after few hours search I found that the BSNL's own system DNS were fastest for BB (at least as per my search and research ).

    Not Open DNS nor the Google Public DNS; it's BSNL's DNS is Fastest and Reliable.:confused:


    I say so because, I download couple of software and also from RUN command testing.

    Take look of few result of mine -
    1] From RUN command Result from RUN command.jpg


    2] From software testing Result from namebech.jpg

    I use following software's - DNS Bechmark & namebench


    Waiting for Reply !

    Thanks !:)

    That's because it is an absolutely overhyped subject. People like to change something and then believe that they have made a huge improvement. It's called go-faster stripes.

    I am very cynical about most of the claims --- but they are not all false! I have spent days watching my browser saying "cannot find the server at ....". Very often that is a problem with the DNS. At that time, in my case, it was widely known that BSNL's DNSs were overloaded and performing badly. A number of people were experiencing the same thing.

    If you believe you have a DNS problem, then do just what you have done: run the various tools to get a recommendation of which server to use, use it, believe it, and have peace of mind. Your own ISP's servers should be fastest.

    Be happy, and don't lisen to those "My dns is faster than yours" merchants. Really, even if it is, they will be gaining hardly anything at all.

    DNS --- don't worry about it! Unless you need to :)

    BSNL DNS is a waste of time. May work good in certain conditions, but overall, it is not reliable. Use OpenDNS or Google DNS. You can see the difference.

    Thnks for Reply !

    "I think it is waste of time to convince anyone to use any particular DNS." as Nick H said.

    If u see my above stated test result from various software as well as pretty reliable test from RUN command, there is at least 50% margin between OPEN DNS + Google DNS and BSNL's DNS.

    As u say "May work good in certain conditions, but overall, it is not reliable" , there is no server in whole world that will perform 100% at any time of the day.

    As far as my test concern, I tested it 5 different times of the day. And the results mentioned above were tested 11.30pm (which is, I think is a prime time for net surfing, downloading etc.) at day before this thread posted.

    So, for me and for my connection, BSNL's DNS are fastest among the other DNS.

    I have my personal experience to count on. I have used Google, Open DNS and BSNL DNS. BSNL DNS were the worst in my case. Even Google was slow to an extent. Using Open DNS since last 6 months. Also tried Comodo and Norton DNS. Didn't felt any huge difference.

    Most don't... most of the time.
    I don't see why BSN shuld be slower to get updated, though: what makes you think that?

    I feel that these delays are time specific, same DNS at another time could be slower.

    You could say that about anything.

    This cup of tea is time specific: the next one might be better. Or worse.

    I just set up local caching server for DNS in Ubuntu.

    Guess what: it saves me about 40ns against sending out to Airtel DNS.

    It was technically fun and satisfying (and quite easy to do) but I can't say it is going to make a blistering difference!

    That's cool.... Some time back I too set up a local caching server for our office using IpCop on Vmware.

    It does boost the browsing speeds considerably...... :)

    I used to use Treewalk with Windows. For some reason, I thought that setting up "proper" DNS under Linux would be difficult. It was so easy! Just install bind9, edit two files and start it up :)

    Yes, I could make my PC the DNS server for the house, but my wife is an early riser, and I am not, so best to leave her machine talking direct to Airtel, I think

    Setting up a DNS server is good. Only problem is when the original DNS records change, it may take days, weeks or even months to update on our private DNS cache.... :(
