Public DNS servers. It is not Just Google!

Posted by Bill Seremetis on Fri, 01/23/2015 - 17:35

I haven't been using the DNS that my ISP provides for five years now and many problems have gone away. Especially problems regarding updating speed. I've been using OpenDNS for my systems, and Google DNS for most of the setups I do for other people. Both because they are stable and easy to remember.

Lately I decided to find out what other option are out there. I'm happy to provide a complete list of IPv4 and IPv6 of publicly available DNS.

 

# OpenDNS Family Shield
nameserver 208.67.222.123
nameserver 208.67.220.123

# Google IPv4 nameservers
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

# Basic Yandex.DNS
nameserver 77.88.8.8
nameserver 77.88.8.1

# OpenDNS IPv4 nameservers
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220

# Comodo nameservers
nameserver 8.26.56.26
nameserver 8.20.247.20

# OpenDNS IPv6 nameservers
nameserver 2620:0:ccc::2
nameserver 2620:0:ccd::2

# Google IPv6 nameservers
nameserver 2001:4860:4860::8888
nameserver 2001:4860:4860::8844

All of the above are free to use at the time of this writing. You can either configure them on your computer or on your router. I'll let you figure how to do it yourselves ;)
