Did you know that changing the DNS servers on your PC can make your internet faster?

Do you want to benefit from the maximum speed of your internet connection?

As you know, a DNS (Domain Name System) server is used to establish the connection between the domain name and its server’s IP address.

In fact, there is a myth circulating that Google’s DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) are the fastest… FALSE!

Google’s DNS servers can be fast compared to local DNS servers, but they are not the fastest, it varies from one connection to another…

But which DNS server to choose? You will tell me…

In this tutorial, you will discover a very powerful software called DNS Benchmark allowing you to find the fastest DNS and thus have the internet at the speed of light!

In short, DNS Benchmark gives you the ability to know which one to use to benefit and enjoy faster browsing.

Let’s go!
