2. DNS Servers

The main function of DNS server is to translate the Computer host names to IP addresses. Most of the time DNS servers of Service provider are not optimized. Because of this, DNS servers are incapable of handling traffic at peak hours, which leads to slow internet speed. But this problem has a fix. There are several free public DNS servers available which handle traffic, if one goes down the other server closest to you is ready to back it up. If you are not satisfied with the speed you are getting from free servers, you have a option to upgrade to premium at a price. The premium servers are less crowded which helps in making connection more reliable and faster.
