First... I am located in the Southeastern part of the United States.

Second... I did not like the DNS server that my ISP suggested, simply because at certain times of the day (ie: when everyone gets home from work and they start beating the hell out of the DNS servers cause everyone is surfing teh internet) it is really slow...

SO... I did some research and tried out a few different DNS servers and these seem to work well for the time being:

nameserver 69.111.95.106
nameserver 206.196.151.153

Does anyone have any good suggestions for DNS servers located in the Southeastern part of the US? Thanks!

Check out OpenDNS:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

I've found them far more resilient and responsive than my ISP's (BT) DNS servers. They have an even broader presence in the US.

Hi Guys,

Try the following Global DNS

4.1.1.2

Hope this is of some help.
