Use Google DNS Server, makes your internet faster!

We used to talk about “DNS Setting Tutorial” , and many people start to ask Why after finish setting, still shown Server not found? In this case there are several reason for that

  • One might be that Website Owner’s DNS Server is not update instantly, most DNS Server provider update every 24-48 hour to decrease the high volume load of their server. In this case, if you are the Website Owner, I would recommend you use Cloudflare as your DNS Server provider, because their DNS Server is update instantly, we use their DNS Server too.
  • Another is the one we are going to teach today, also it’s the one that can be configure by client side. Most Internet provider default DNS to their local DNS Server, and those were usually update every 24-48 hour, base on the data from our faculty, that some DNS Server update up to 48 Hour, which is very bad. If Website A decide to change Server from Server 1 to Server 2, than part of their client might have to wait 48 hour to see their website again. And Google DNS Server it’s the one who update DNS record instantly, also it’s faster than most of the default DNS Server.
