First of all, what's the term for services like Open DNS? Public DNS servers?

I like how Open DNS allows content filtering and statistics monitoring. But I just wanted to get an idea of what else was out there that gives similar functionality. Any suggestions? Thanks!


I guess you would call them free DNS resolution services.

The only other I know of similar to OpenDNS is DNS Advantage.


Google runs what are probably the most popular at and but you can find a list at http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/a/free-public-dns-servers.htm

that is if resolution is all you want.
