From time to time we have clients contact us as they can not view certain websites. Quite often the reason for this is outdated DNS caching at their ISP.

For a superior browsing experience we always recommend people use Open DNS. Here are a few reasons why...

OpenDNS's proprietary DNS caching technology finds and locates the last known good IP address for Web sites that are experiencing difficulty, making Web sites that are down for the rest of the Internet load for OpenDNS users.

Provides responsible and helpful search results for people on your network when they make typos in the address bar, freeing them of the annoying error page experience.

Browser shortcuts let your users map a short term to a long URL via the address bar.

Automatic typo correction auto-corrects the most common typos in top-level domains like .com, .edu and .net.

Cloud-based, award-winning Web content filtering from OpenDNS with more than 50 categories of content. No appliance necessary. Effective against proxies, P2P, Web 2.0, adult and more.

Industry-leading anti-phishing powered by PhishTank, the most authoritative source of phishing data on the Internet. Protects your network, organization and its employees from fraudulent phishing scams.

DNS layer security protects the most vulnerable level of your network against the latest threats, including viruses, worms and zero-day vulnerabilities.

Lets you decide where your users can navigate on your customized Internet. Whitelist-only functionality available.

If this isnt enough to convince you of the benefits of OpenDNS, there is now a Family Shield which is easier to set up than Parental Controls. You can also use Family Shield in the workplace to block certain sites from employees.

There is a free edition so you can try it out without any commitment.
