DNS Server does resolve the IP proxy assigned to a Website name. When you type a website name or domain name into an app—like your browser, your computer sends a request to your ISPs default DNS server to resolve the IP address assigned to the domain name. When your computer gets the IP address, it sends another request to the IP address to get the data required to render that webpage, that’s how internet surfing works.
So when you search a lot of websites, your browser has to resolve the domain name to get their IP addresses, and this takes time. Sometimes your internet service providers default DNS server might slow down the process a little bit. So you can use other free and public DNS server to speed up IP resolving so the surfing speed.
Please know that it will not increase your internet bandwidth but it will quickly resolve IP address of a particular domain name for your computer can send a request to render the web page faster.
Here is an updated list of free, and Public DNS servers
|DNS Server provider||Pirmary DNS Server||Secondary DNS server|
|Comodo Secure DNS||18.104.22.168||22.214.171.124|
Note: Primary DNS server is also called as Preferred DNS server, and secondary DNS server is called Alternative or alternate DNS server in Windows. Similiar terminology works in Linux and MAC.
