Get to this website; http://goo.gl/DEGKyA. And choose a DNS server. Before beginning, I will explain to you what is an open DNS. It is a company and service which extends the Domain Name System by adding features such as phishing protection. And optional content filtering to traditional recursive DNS services. So if you use an open DNS, it will fetch the domain names, faster than the regular and comparatively slower DNS servers. Provided by your ISP’s, which will result in faster browsing experience.
