OpenDNS Serves 20 Billion DNS Requests In One Day
OpenDNS has been around for quite some time now, I use them myself, though lately I have been messing around with Google’s DNS (since it’s new and well I’m a geek). Nonetheless, David Ulevitch (OpenDNS founder), just posted on his Facebook and Twitter that yesterday OpenDNS served 20 Billion DNS requests. That is a single-day record. You can see it for yourself on the OpenDNS System page (also see screenshot below).
That’s pretty amazing. As I mentioned I have used OpenDNS for quite some time now and I love it. It’s an excellent service and I still believe it’s better, faster, and more secure than Google’s public DNS.
Not only does it provide more features but yesterday I added a new subdomain which pointed to another server for bt.gd and OpenDNS had resolved it before Google. I will be switching back to OpenDNS. If you haven’t tried it already I highly recommend you check it out.
Congrats to David and the rest of the OpenDNS team for their new record!
