On 3 December 2009, Google launched its Public DNS service. Google Public DNS is a free Internet name resolution service similar to the free version of OpenDNS, What’s the difference between these two services? As of now, OpenDNS is the more established product, having existed for four more years than Google’s and offering more options for setup and control. Which one is faster, or more secure, can be debated. The primary and secondary public IP addresses of each differ, obviously
OpenDNS: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
Google DNS: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
