Access Internet using Norton DNS Public Beta

It is said that users can have a faster, safer and more reliable internet experience if DNS server is set to Norton DNS Public Beta. Well, Norton is well known for the antivirus product. I suppose safer might be true. The procedure is simple. All you have to do is go to network setting, click on property under TCP/IP and change Preferred/Alternate DNS server to the IP address given by Norton. You may refer to Norton DNS Public Beta website for a detail instruction. It’s not just Norton, you may even try out OpenDNS and Google Public DNS. I can’t really tell if it helps to speed up things because everybody will have a different experience. I suppose this has to do with your location and ISP. Just remember to record down the original DNS before you make any changes. Change back to the original DNS if you’re unable to go online or surfing becomes slow. Just compare and choose the best. It will be better if you can just try out 3 of them. Who knows one of the DNS might actually speed up your surfing.
