How To Change The DNS Servers Of A Domain Name

Posted on : 04-12-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

Tags: ,


Buying a domain name is not enough to have a website up and running. You need to host your site on a server. In order for this to work, you have to point the DNS servers of your domain name to the values indicated by your webhosting company.

I’m giving you this example: I bought a domain name from Namecheap and a hosting account from Bluehost. When I bought the domain name, I didn’t know where I was going to host my site yet, so I didn’t enter any DNS servers. Now that I decided to put it on Bluehost, I need to make the DNS names ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com, as indicated in my Bluehost account. It doesn’t matter where you get your webhosting from. All companies will provide you the DNS servers you need to point your domain name at. Make note of these values, then go to the registrar where you bought your domain from and replace whatever default values with your new ones. I’ll show you how to do it in NameCheap, GoDaddy and Moniker. If you need help with another registrar, just leave a comment here and I’ll add a short tutorial for you.

How to change DNS servers in NameCheap
After you enter your NameCheap login data, go to DOMAINS and choose Manage Domains from the drop-down menu.

In the next screen, click on your domain name. Then, from the left side menu, choose “Transfer DNS to webhost”. Type the new DNS servers in the first two fields in the form, as you can see in the picture below:

Click on “Save changes” at the bottom of the form and you’re done. Keep in mind that it may take up to 24 hours until the changes become effective, so you can take a break until tomorrow, when we are going to see how to install WordPress using Simple Scripts or Fantastico.

How to change DNS servers in GoDaddy
Finding and changing the DNS servers in GoDaddy would be easy if they didn’t have such a busy page design. It’s like they want to upsell you everything they have. Anyway, you first need to go to Domain Manager, which is easy to find. Just click on MyAccount (the last item in the main menu) and you’ll then see “My Domains with a link that says “See all in Domain Manager”. If you click on that, you’ll see a login form and right after you login you’ll be in your Domain Manager. From there, choose the domain name you want to change DNS servers for.

After you choose your domain name, click on it, then click on Set nameservers, as you can see from the picture above. After you make sure you have selected the “I have specific nameservers for my domains” radio button, enter your desired values for Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2. For Bluehost, they will be ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com:

Click OK and you’re done. Don’t forget that it takes hours for the changes to become active. This is valid for any other registrar and any other webhost. It’s how the internet works.

How to change DNS servers in Moniker

Next you have to click on your domain name to enter the DNS editing mode:

All you need to do now is enter your new nameservers and your site will be ready to go:

Now you are ready for installing WordPress on your site. I’ll show you how to do it in one of the next lessons.

Resources used in this lesson:
Bluehost shared hosting account: $5.95 per month
.com domain name registered with NameCheap: $9.98 per year
.com domain name registered with GoDaddy: $9.99 per year
.com domain name registered with Moniker: $8.99 per year
Seeing that you only need to buy one domain name from any of the registrars, your costs for operating a website are about $80 per year. This is the minimum needed you have to pay for. Everything else can be found online for free if your budget doesn’t allow any extras.

How to Speed Up Your Cloud Apps at No Extra Charge

Posted on : 24-11-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

Tags: ,


When it comes to the Joyent Cloud, most site owners and operators are familiar with the benefits of powering their applications via Infrastructure-as-a-Service:

Pay for what you use, nothing more
Scale up or down your infrastructure with demand
Automate your infrastructure with APIs and configuration management tools
Reduce provisioning time from days or hours to minutes or seconds in many cases.
There’s a fifth major benefit that those on the leading edge of Joyent Cloud technology are taking advantage of, and as cloud providers like Joyent continue to expand their offerings and footprints, this benefit continues to become more and more compelling:

Don’t lump all of your infrastructure in one geographical basket; buy smaller pieces of infrastructure close to where your users live, delivering a faster experience that’s more highly available.
The economics of going global in the Joyent Cloud are compelling because you likely won’t pay significantly more than you are now:

If you’re already deployed to the cloud and serving 100% of your nominal load from a single physical location, it doesn’t cost significantly more from an infrastructure standpoint to serve 50% of your nominal load from each of two physical Joyent Cloud locations to become highly available.
I’ll note there are some architectural caveats here. You’ll need to make sure your application is architected to be served from multiple physical locations, but if you’re intent on maximizing performance and minimizing exposure to downtime, you’re architected accordingly!
Once you’re in two locations, each with 50% nominal load but capable of handling 100% of the nominal load in a failover scenario, it doesn’t cost significantly more to leverage your Joyent Cloud provider’s global footprint to segment further. You can serve 25% of your nominal load from each of four global locations, or 10% from each of ten global locations, or adjust based on user geography to serve 80% from two locations and 20% from a third, perhaps on a different continent all together.
So, with compelling benefits (increased availability and performance for a global audience) combined with compelling economics (if it’s true infrastructure-as-a-service and you can divide your workload, it doesn’t cost significantly more to spread your workload globally than it does to serve your workload entirely from one physical location), you’re ready to go global, right?

Well, there’s one important piece missing. Just because you can serve your application globally, how can you make sure the right users get to the right location, and make sure that location is available for your users to reach?

After all, if everyone types in “example.org” into their address bar, how do you make sure the users on the West coast of the USA get sent to Joyent Cloud data centers on the West Coast? How do you make sure the users on the East Coast of the USA get sent to Joyent Cloud datacenters on the East Coast?

That’s where DynECT Managed DNS services come in, all of which leverage the global DNS system to efficiently and accurately route your users to the right global location. Here’s a quick overview of the many flavors of global load balancing achievable via DNS, ordered from simplest (and least effective) to most advanced (and most effective). Let’s dive in!

Round Robin Load Balancing
The simplest of all global load balancers: if you have three global locations and you want 33% of your global traffic to go to each, simply store three records in your DNS server under the same label (e.g., basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com) like so:

basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com IN A
basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com IN A
basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com IN A

You can add these records to your current DNS server or use a managed DNS product like DynECT Managed DNS which will show the configuration similar to below:

Figure 1 – A basic round robin load balancer configured in DynECT Managed DNS

When users request basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com, their computers will see three options, and will choose one pseudo-randomly (sort of… read on).

$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com +short

In a perfect world, 33% of users would land at 1.2.34, 33% at, and 33% at In reality, many resolvers and browsers have a “preference” for which IP to connect to in this scenario, and will tend to prefer the numerically smallest IP address. You may actually find that 40-50% of your users connect to, and 25-30% connect to each of and Not perfectly balanced.

It works, but it could be better! Let’s explore the next approach.

DynECT Round Robin Load Balancing

To address the challenges of client-preference for some IP addresses over others in a traditional round robin load balancer resulting in skewed traffic distribution toward the numerically smaller IP addresses, the DynECT DNS team added an important enhancement when they added a global load balancing service: rather than return all IP addresses for a query for basic-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com (in the example above, we configured 3 IP addresses, and all 3 IP addresses get returned to the client, leaving it up to the client to determine which one to connect to), the DynECT Managed DNS platform can be configured to only return a subset of the three configured IP addresses to end-users.

By doing so, even traffic distribution can be more closely achieved, since the client is no longer able to favor one IP address consistently over another. This capability is called the “serve count” and controls how many IP addresses will get returned for a query to the DynECT load balancing service. Here, we’ll configure DynECT Round Robin Load Balancing for dynect-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com:
Figure 2 – Configuring DynECT Round Robin Load Balancing with a Serve Count of 1

Here’s the effect on the answers to the queries; each query receives only a single A record in response (we set the serve count to 1; had we set it to 2 or 3, more answers would be returned). The DNS server is now responsible for introducing the necessary randomness in issuing responses to distribute traffic load.

$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-round-robin.standingonthebrink.com +short

If we wanted to change how frequently one address is returned in comparison to the others (e.g., send 50% of the traffic to one IP address and 25% to each of the other two), we don’t need to add any additional A records to the service. We can simply adjust the “weight” drop down to impact how frequently each address is returned; here, with a weight of 1 for each IP address, they’re returned in equal responses to queries, ensuring as even of a traffic distribution as possible.

But, what happens if one of these IP addresses becomes unavailable? What happens then? Let’s continue exploring the next option for global JoyentCloud traffic management using DNS.

DynECT Active Failover

So we’re happily managing traffic for our globally deployed web application in the JoyentCloud, but what happens if one of our instances of the application experiences a problem? What ensures users don’t get routed to infrastructure that is no longer available?

That’s where DynECT Active Failover comes in. Building on top of DynECT Round Robin Load Balancing, DynECT Active Failover adds a monitoring component to ensure only available IP addresses are returned in response to queries. Here, we turn that on my selecting the “Serve Mode” of “Monitor & Remove on Failure.”

Figure 3 – Add DynECT Active Failover to Monitor IP Addresses

You can pick from a number of monitoring protocols (e.g., HTTP, HTTPS, Ping, SMTP, etc.) and a number of behaviors to execute on failover (e.g., remove the bad address from the load balancer and shift load onto the other IP addresses, remove the bad address from the load balancer and replace it with a standby address, etc.).

The net result is that if your infrastructure becomes unavailable in one of your global locations, your users will get seamlessly routed around the problem to ensure a seamless web experience.

So far so good! We’ve ensured that our traffic is being routed to our JoyentCloud infrastructure in the proportions we want, and if one of those locations becomes unavailable, the traffic will seamlessly shift to the other locations.

But what about the performance of our application? If our users on the East Coast are getting dragged over to the West Coast JoyentCloud infrastructure, they’re receiving a far slower user experience than if we ensured they were routed to the nearby East Coast JoyentCloud infrastructure. We’ll explore geotargeting next!

DynECT Traffic Management (GSLB)

Building on top of our previous examples, we’re now going to add geo-targeting with the following rules for queries to dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com:

If the end user is determined to be on the West Coast, send them to one of our two IP addresses for the West Coast. If one becomes unavailable, failover to the other; if both become unavailable, failover to the East Coast.
If the end user is determined to be on the East coast, send them to the single East Coast IP address. If that IP address becomes unavailable, send them to the West Coast.
For anyone else in the world, send them to one of the three IP addresses at random. (We could get more specific and further optimize here, but for the brevity of the example, we won’t.)
The following shows the specific rulesets created in DynECT Managed DNS for the US West and US East regions (two of seven regions, where the other five are US Central, EU West, EU Central, EU East and Asia). We’ve mapped the appropriate IP addresses, given them equal weight, set the serve count to 1, set the serve mode to “Monitor & Remove on Failure”, and most importantly set “Failover to Global Status” to On; this important piece ensures that if we remove all of the IP addresses from the region due to failure detection, we’ll fallback to using the “global” ruleset, ensuring there are additional IP addresses to route users to.

Figure 4 – Add Geotargeting to Improve User Experience

With the geotargeting in effect, we now see the following query behavior from different vantage points around the globe.

From the East Coast, we only see a single IP address returned for each query (note that all IP addresses start with “3”):

$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short

From the West Coast, we see load balancing occurring between the two IP addresses configured (note that all IP addresses start with either “1” or “2”, and “3” is nowhere to be found):

$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short

From any other vantage point on the Internet (in this example, we’re using a server in London), we are globally load balanced among all three IP addresses (note that we see all three addresses):

$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short
$ dig @NS1.P24.DYNECT.NET dynect-traffic-management.standingonthebrink.com +short

Awesome, we’re really getting in control of our global traffic management now. But what if we need more granularity in our control? What if we want to split users by country? Let’s explore that next.

DynECT Geo Traffic Management

The DynECT Traffic Management service explored above relies on region-based control of how to manage traffic. You define one of seven regions around the world and what IP addresses should be returned for users within those regions.

Depending on the locations of your users, the regions available (three in the USA/North America, three in Europe, and one in Asia) may be tremendously too large. Here, we’ll explore Asia.

Let’s explore how we can break the “Asia” region into smaller sub-regions that include:

China, India and surrounding neighbors
Everything else in the region
To do so, you’ll want to leverage the DynECT Geo Traffic Management service that performs a database lookup on the source IP address for every query received and makes a decision for where the user is located in the world by the country believed to be home to that user.

Currently in beta, this service on DynECT Managed DNS allows you to create your own regions composed of individual countries around the world and define the traffic management behavior for users in those countries. It’s perfect for fine-grained control of your global traffic management.

So, all in all, we’ve explored a number of ways to manage your global traffic in the Joyent Cloud using DNS, but each additional capability added an additional configuration requirement, increasing the complexity of getting up and running. How can we address this? Enter DynECT Real Time Traffic Management

DynECT Real Time Traffic Management

The motivations for using DynECT Real Time Traffic Management are simple:

Ensure users are routed to the appropriate infrastructure for them using real time insight into application and global network performance, and
Automatically determine the right global traffic management rules to optimize your performance and availability based on real time network performance and availability measurements.
In all previous examples of DNS load balancing services, you as administrator were required to configure regions and IP addresses manually. By contrast, with DynECT Real Time Traffic Management, you only provide your list of Joyent Cloud IP addresses and the DynECT Managed DNS platform takes care of the rest.

The DynECT Managed DNS platform will measure availability and latency to each of your IP addresses from multiple global Internet vantage points, and automatically create the traffic management rules to ensure users are always routed to the best possible JoyentCloud instances for them.

For instance, let’s say one of your global instances comes under heavy load, which increases the amount of time required to service each individual user; DynECT Real Time Traffic Management will take this performance impact into consideration and automatically adjust the global traffic management rules to transfer some of the users to further away, but less heavily loaded and thus faster JoyentCloud instances. When additional capacity is deployed or the heavy load subsides, DynECT Real Time Traffic Management will detect this condition as well and seamlessly shift global traffic back.

It’s All in the DNS

All in all, we’ve explored a number of techniques for globally managing your JoyentCloud traffic using a global DNS footprint, with some particular examples pulled from the DynECT Managed DNS platform. All of this capability is enabled thanks to the tremendously valuable role DNS plays in the architecture of the Internet; it sits between the end-user and everything else they want to access, providing a tremendous amount of flexibility and control into the best way for the end-user to reach the content they seek.

Setting up nsd DNS server

Posted on : 16-11-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

NSD is an authoritative-only DNS server. The following page shows how to setup a single-zone configuration, with one server being a master where updates are made, and a slave which will have changes replicated to it automatically. In the examples is used as the master server’s IP, while is the slave. The IP addresses used here (along with the domain) should be replaced with the proper IP addresses of your servers.

Installation is simple (perform this step on both servers):
apk add nsd

First, setup the main configuration file on the master server, /etc/nsd/nsd.conf, replacing the secret with a proper one:
port: 53
server-count: 1
ip4-only: yes
hide-version: yes
identity: “”
zonesdir: “/etc/nsd”
name: “sec_key”
algorithm: hmac-md5
secret: “WhateverSecretYouUse”
name: alpinelinux.org
zonefile: alpinelinux.org.zone
notify: sec_key
provide-xfr: sec_key
Then, create the zone file for the zone in question (/etc/nsd/alpinelinux.org.zone in this case):

;## alpinelinux.org authoritative zone

$ORIGIN alpinelinux.org.
$TTL 86400

@ IN SOA ns1.alpinelinux.org. webmaster.alpinelinux.org. (
2011100501 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
7200 ; retry
86400 ; expire
86400 ; min TTL

NS ns1.alpinelinux.org.
MX 10 mail.alpinelinux.org.
lists MX 10 mail.alpinelinux.org.
@ IN A
mail IN A
www IN A
www-prd IN A
www-qa IN A
wiki IN A
lists IN A
monitor IN A
bugs IN A
nl IN A
dl-2 IN A
dl-3 IN A
dl-4 IN A
rsync IN A
distfiles IN A
build-edge IN A
build64-edge IN A
build-2-2 IN A
build64-2-2 IN A
build-2-1 IN A
build-2-0 IN A
build-1-10 IN A
Next, on the slave server, setup /etc/nsd/nsd.conf:
port: 53
server-count: 1
ip4-only: yes
hide-version: yes
identity: “”
zonesdir: “/etc/nsd”
name: “sec_key”
algorithm: hmac-md5
secret: “WhateverSecretYouUse”
name: alpinelinux.org
zonefile: alpinelinux.org.zone
allow-notify: sec_key
request-xfr: AXFR sec_key
Create the zone file /etc/nsd/alpinelinux.org.zone as well on the slave.
Start Server

First step, make sure you didn’t have any typos in your configuration (on both boxes):
nsd-checkconf /etc/nsd/nsd.conf
Then each time a change is made to the zone (including when you first start the server), you need to rebuild the NSD zone databases:
nsdc rebuild
Finally, start the server and set it to auto-start:
/etc/init.d/nsd start
rc-update add nsd

Prepare Your Ecommerce Solution for DNS Failure

Posted on : 16-11-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

Domain Name Service (DNS) issues may be more of a concern this holiday shopping season than expected, according to a recent study commissioned by VeriSign, Inc. Ecommerce solutions of all sizes could be at risk of experiencing the devastating effects of DNS failure and website downtime.

The main finding of the study was that sites with internally managed DNS had a minimum availability of 95.05%, while sites using DNS managed by a third-party averaged a minimum availability of 97.35%. Although these numbers only differ by 2.3%, that small variance accounts for about 40 more minutes of downtime daily for the internally managed sites. Complete DNS failure, which results in website downtime, is more costly than you can imagine- for every hour of downtime, a business could potentially lose $50,000 to $100,000. This statistic shows how detrimental 40 minutes of downtime can actually become.

If you think only smaller ecommerce solutions should be concerned about DNS failure, think again. Even mega-retailer Target suffered from downtime when their server crashed during the Missoni brand launch. DNS failure significantly affects customer loyalty to a brand and its ecommerce solution. A 2010 study showed that most shoppers will abandon a website if it take 3 seconds or longer to load- 3 seconds! Even if your DNS avoids complete failure, you can still lose potential profits from impatient consumers.

Whether you own a chain of brick-and-mortar stores along with your online store, or you rely solely on an ecommerce solution, the cost of DNS failure and website downtime is unaffordable. Not even the largest e-tailers can reconcile a loss in profits of potentially $100,000, which is why it is vital to evaluate your DNS management tool before the holiday shopping season kicks into gear.

Here are several tips on how to prepare your DNS to avoid downtime during this holiday season:

1. Invest in an alternative DNS management tool, especially if your primary DNS is internal. With an internally managed DNS, an ecommerce solution is significantly more at risk to experience total outages. Sites who took advantage of third-party DNS management services never faced total outages.

2. Avoid self-managed DNS. The study showed that sites with self-managed DNS experience 40 more minutes of downtime than those sites managed by a third-party.

3. Prepare for peak usage. Peter Merelud, VP of Product management at Kemp Technologies, was recently interviewed by InformationWeek and gave this advice:

“Plan for peak usage. [Whenever] online vendors experience their absolute peak usage, that’s what they have to be prepared to support. Otherwise they can experience a crash and will have lost all of this business.”

Identify peak traffic patterns and then prepare for them. Don’t just plan for average usage during this year’s busy season.

4. “Plan for more traffic than you can handle”. Merelud also suggests to not only plan for peak usage, but also plan for more shoppers than you can handle. It would be a shame for any ecommerce solution to lose potential business because they weren’t expecting the amount of traffic. Anticipate an extreme holiday rush, especially if you are planning to offer extra deals during on Cyber Monday or any other big holiday shopping times. Don’t repeat Target’s Missoni launch situation.

5. Consider where your servers are located. Think about having servers in different locations. In case one site becomes slow or unavailable, the traffic from the failed site can be taken on by the other site, which will allow your ecommerce solution to continue functioning.

With all the other competitive factors ecommerce solutions are already going to face during the upcoming holiday season, DNS failures should not be one of them.

What is an Email Service Provider?

Posted on : 16-11-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

Tags: ,


Email Service Provider is a service supplied by hosting companies that supply mailserver capabilities to businesses. Email Service Provider is wonderful for small businesses or people seeking a reputable email services featuring webmail, IMAP, POP3 and SMTP. Email Service Provider generally contain junk e-mail and virus protection and several additional features. Email Service Provider are suitable for Microsoft Outlook along with other 3rd party email software in addition to the majority of mobile phones. Email Service Provider normally offer you quality e-mail at a price instead of free of charge e-mail or totally free webmail.
Email Service Provider are made up of advanced email solutions, customized options and large number of accounts. Email Service Provider commonly include the use of ones own domain address.
Most Email Service Provider offer sophisticated email services located on dedicated custom made email systems. The technologies and choices of various Email Service Provider could vary among suppliers. Email Service Provider offered by almost all hosting companies will likely be more standardized POP based email and web-mail making use of open source webmail programs including Horde, SquirrelMail along with RoundCube. The majority web hosting providers provide basic mailserver abilities. Numerous email web hosting companies offer more complex e-mail services such as Microsoft Exchange.
Quite a few web host suppliers provide secure mail-server functions using SSL. Email Service Provider that support secure connections support POP4 as well as IMAP over SSL. This allows the connections to the server to be safeguarded so hackers can’t intercept an individual’s emails. It is a good plan if you wish to keep your email’s transmission protected.
Another excellent word of advice is to locate Email Service Provider that include a dedicated IP address. Also find Email Service Provider which will create a PTR and SOA record for you. these all will reduce the odds of an individual’s e-mail being delivered to somebody’s junk e-mail folder.
Research before you buy while searching for Email Service Provider. Not all Email Service Provider provide you with the exact same degree of service and assistance. It’s also wise to be mindful with deciding upon Email Service Provider due to the fact a few hosts will overload their machines. Quite a few also do not have basic safety in place to protect the machine from spammers. Whenever deciding on Email Service Provider perform a search online and check if you find any good or negative reviews in regards to the supplier.

Need to claim your own spot on the Web? Here’s how to do so through a domain name registrar service.

One of the many reasons the Internet is so powerful is because it gives nearly anyone the ability to contribute their voice and knowledge to the rest of the world. A particularly popular way to make yourself known is to set up a website.

These days many services, such as Google Pages or WordPress, offer websites on commercial domains, but in a lot of cases it makes more sense to have your website on your own domain–a personal place on the Internet where you are in complete control of what is published and how it looks. Here’s how to register your own domain name.

When setting up your personal domain name, you have a lot of options and many vendors to choose from. You can search around to see what works best for you and your needs, but the following steps outline the gist of what you need to do:

Change Your DNS Quickly and Easily With Windows DNS Changer

Posted on : 16-11-2011 | By : admin | In : DNS Hosting, DNS VPS

Domain Name System or DNS provides name resolution for domain names against their numerical identifiers.This is because the Internet maintains two principal namespaces. When you enter a URL in your web browser and press enter, your computer uses a DNS server to look up the website you’re visiting. The Internet browsing speed also depends on the DNS server you use on your computer. Most users use DNS servers which are automatically assigned by their ISPs. Sometimes it happens that an ISP’s DNS server responds slowly when it is overloaded. This result in slower browsing at the end user. When you’re getting slow browsing speed from the Internet, you can try out 3rd Party DNS servers.

Open DNS and Google DNS are the most popular DNS servers. They have been providing their own DNS servers for many years now and have been used by millions of users all around the world.

Windows DNS Changer is a portable application that lets you change your DNS to popular and pre-set DNS servers without having to manually edit your TCP/IP connection settings. quickly and easily. Just download the tool and run the .exe file, you don’t need to install the tool. When you run the .exe file, Windows DNS server window should appear having four options to change the DNS server in one click.

With Windows DNS Changer you can set Google DNS, Open DNS and Sprint DNS. It also lets you preset one custom DNS server address.
