I was wondering what DNS server you guys use ?

I'm currently using 'clearcloud' as it blocks malware.

openDNS just filters out content is what I heard.

What do you think ? B)

I prefer using my ISP's since its on the same network, and I trust my ISP more so then another 3rd Party DNS Server.

I use my ISP as my default DNS server, and Google's as my secondary.

Open DNS primary, ISP secondary

Posted Image

A few NOOBIE questions: I used Namebench for testing, how reliable is this test? Can anyone recommend a more reliable test? Should I use my ISP (Comcast) as primary and "other" ( Open, Google, etc.) as secondary?

Thanks in advance.
