Well, if you have enough knowledge about the workings of the internet, then you might be well aware of the DNS. DNS or Domain Name System is a database of different domain names and IP Addresses. It was the DNS that matches the domain name with its IP address.
When you enter a URL on the web browser, the DNS server looks for the IP Address associated with the domain name. Once matched, it comments on the web server of the visiting site, and then the web page is loaded.
Usually, we use the DNS servers provided by the ISP. However, it’s always best to use the public ones. Public DNS servers like Google DNS, OpenDNS, etc. offer better speed and enhanced security features. Also, having the fastest DNS server results in better internet speed.
