Links to further descriptive help, FAQ pages and resources for this benchmarkutility are located at the bottom of each page.
When the Benchmark is started in its default configuration, it identifies all DNS nameservers the user's system is currently configured to use and adds them to its built-in list of publicly available “alternative” nameservers.
Each DNS nameserver in the benchmark list is carefully “characterized” to determine its suitability — to you — for your use as a DNS resolver.
This characterization includes testing each nameserver for its “redirection” behavior: whether it returns an error for a bad domain request, or redirects a user's web browser to a commercial marketing-oriented page.
People use alphabetic domain names (com), but Internet data packets require numerical Internet IP addresses (126.96.36.199).
