    I use OpenDNS. It's easy to use. I prefer it over Google's DNS because of privacy concerns.

    I don't really understand what's the point of changing it, so I just stick with my ISP's default.

    I know them by heart. ISP DNS sucks so bad.

    OpenDNS for the win. [​IMG] I almost switched to Google's DNS, but Namebench suggested I stick with OpenDNS, so... yeah.

    I run my own using Treewalk DNS, I do this because there was a time a while back when my cable modem refused to access websites every 30 minutes or so for a period of 10-15 seconds. OpenDNS, and other DNS providers didn't work. Only other fix was to access sites exclusively via their numbers, which wasn't fun [​IMG]

    Custom hosts file, standard OS level cache, on network (sometimes), router hacked to use openDNS (it seems to be a new trick of ISPs to stop DNS changing so I had to hack it back to the base model).

    For portable machines I will tend to add openDNS to their DNS server lists depending on how/where the machine is used (having to run through network config over the phone/email is not as fun as it sounds) and while I rarely use it I do have a fallback DNS on a remote server I look after that more or less mirrors my home machines. Unless I am playing with it then it is only internet facing if I SSH into that machine, launch the daemon, telnet from there into the network router there and sort it all out).
    That one is more of a one for associates when visiting countries that dislike such things though.

    I usually just use my ISP DNS, but when I have a problem I like using Google's.
    The main reason why I use google is because of the IP address, really easy to remember [​IMG]

    I switched to OpenDNS because of Rogers' DNS re-directing. A mistyped URL would bring up ad filled pages stored on the Rogers' server. And whenever I reached 75% of my monthly cap they hijacked web pages displaying a banner that told me that. It was annoying so I switched.
