How to set up OpenDNS to surf faster and safer

Posted by ClifNotes, Aug 2008, permalink Web Service


I recently noticed that my old friend Paul Thunder had bookmarked a tutorial on setting up OpenDNS. DNS is basically a web service that tells your PC where to go on the net when you type in an address. OpenDNS is different because it's made to help protect you from the bad places. Typically, you are getting your DNS service from your internet provider, but you don't have to settle for a second rate DNS service. If you are interested, read this tutorial from webmonkey to find out how to get faster and safer web surfing.


Quote from OpenDNS:

OpenDNS protects millions of people a day across hundreds of thousands of schools, businesses and homes. We block phishing sites, give you the power to filter out adult sites and proxies among more than 50 categories, and provide the precision to block individual domains.


We provide you with the tools to see what's happening on your network, coupled with the tools to take action. For example, discover that myspace is the most frequently visited site on your network, and then block it with a single click.


Free yourself of DNS-related Internet outages with our zero-downtime global network. Eliminate DNS as a problem source on your network. Using OpenDNS means fewer support calls and headaches, letting you focus on more important issues.
