Google has once again stepped up and is now offering another free service to make our lives more efficient. The search giant announced today that they will now be offering DNS servers for the public at no cost. This comes in addition to the multitude of services already offered by Google, such as Gmail, Google Voice and Google Sites.
For those of you who do not know, DNS servers are somewhat like phone books. You know the name (the website's address, like www.magnatecha.com) and the server knows the IP number. This is another installment in their attempts to "make the web faster".
Google believes their techniques can speed up our overall web experience. I have been using Google's DNS servers since just after the announcement and I have seen a noticeable difference. Even though my page loading was not slow (today), Google's servers make it just a bit faster. This could come in handy on those days that your Internet provider's servers feel sluggish.
You can set up your computer to use Google's DNS servers by following their instructions here: Using Google Public DNS
