Today we are going to breakdown two methods to Hack your DNS for faster browsing and downloading. The following methods allow you to give your internet a 20-30% speed boost by simply changing your Default DNS to Google DNS. Here is a step-by-step guide to making the change simple for you, even if you are not tech-savvy.

What is DNS?

The Domain Name Server DNS is a protocol that changes an IP address to a domain address and vice versa. Imagine if you had to remember the exact digits for each of your favorite site, instead of its name. DNS translates the digits of an IP address into more humanly readable alphabetic words. Each time you type “youtube” into the URL address bar, at the backend, DNS fetches the corresponding IP address for youtube to get you connected to that site.

Today we will show you how you can change your default DNS, set by your ISP, to an alternative free DNS service. This will help you upgrade the speed of the internet.
