What is OpenDNS?

OpenDNS is a safer, faster, smarter and more reliable way to navigate the Internet.

How does it work?

OpenDNS works by caching a key phase of Web-page requests (namely, DNS requests) from its thousands of users, so that the site you want is blasted to you in a fraction of a second.

There’s no fee, no software to install, you don’t give them any information about yourself, and you don’t have to do anything different once you change your router’s DNS server addresses.

What are the benefits?

Safer. Warns of phishing and adult sites.

Faster. Speeds up your existing connection

Smarter. Precise insight into your DNS

OpenDNS is safer

OpenDNS protects you from phishing — bad websites trying to steal yourpersonal information. When you try to go to a phishing site, we let you know. OpenDNS also lets you optionally block adult sites as a category, or individual websites of any type. These services help you better protect those on your network from websites they shouldn't be visiting.

OpenDNS is faster

You use DNS every time you use the Internet. The speed of your DNS service determines how quickly websites load for you. That's why you want your DNS service to be blazing. OpenDNS is so fast because they run some of the largest DNS caches around and do it on their own high-performance network.

OpenDNS is smarter

The address bar is how you navigate the Internet. They make your address bar more intelligent. With OpenDNS, you can create shortcuts that let you type something easy-to-remember into your address bar and leap straight where you want to go. For example, rather than having to type in you can just type in “e” and shoot right to the site.

And we'll correct your common spelling mistakes, on the fly. That means when you are typing fast and type yahoo.cmo instead of, you still get there.

OpenDNS is more reliable

Little is more frustrating than intermittent Internet outages. When your DNS service isn't working, you can't access the Internet. When you start using OpenDNS, your days of dealing with DNS-related downtime will be over. We know reliability is important, and we stand behind ours.
