New and Improved DNS Jumper

Recently I have been following the talk about DNS (Domain Naming System) and which DNS nameserver settings to use that will ultimately optimize and make your internet experience faster and safer.

The DNS protocol is an important part of the web’s infrastructure, serving as the Internet’s phone book: every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup. Complex pages often require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading, so your computer may be performing hundreds of lookups a day. – Google

Typically, changing your DNS on your computer requires configuration changes, that are actually pretty easy to do; however, most people will not attempt those changes for fear of causing problems with their PCs. Recently I posted an article about an utility called DNS Jumper that is engineered to change your DNS setting for you and if you are not satisfied with those changes you simply revert back to the defaults.

Today I noticed that a new version of DNS Jumper is out there that is deserving of attention. This little utility (which is portable) has evolved into a very attractive and powerful tool where you can manually select a free DNS Service or you can let DNS Jumper find the fastest DNS service for you.

Other features built into this tool are:

  • Add your own DNS Services to the already compiled listing
  • Flush the existing DNS cache on your PC
  • Backup the DNS Configurations
  • Check/Test the response time of your current DNS

  1. Yay OpenDNS fastest at 35ms :O. (Fastest by far too!).

    Unfortunately the free wifi networks that I use (Second cup, safeway, starbucks) all force THERE DNS servers…so I can’t use OpenDNS :(.
