Comodo Secure DNS is a domain name resolution service that resolves your DNS requests through our worldwide network of redundant DNS servers. This can provide a much faster and more reliable Internet browsing experience than using the DNS servers provided by your ISP and does not require any hardware or software installation. When you choose to use Comodo SecureDNS, your computer's network settings will be changed so that all applications that access the internet will use Comodo SecureDNS servers. Your computer's primary/secondary DNS settings will be changed to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
Comodo Secure DNS gives you a safer, smarter and faster Internet because it's:
More Reliable - Comodo Secure DNS's server infrastructure currently spans 15 locations (nodes) and five continents around the world. This allows Comodo to offer you the most reliable fully redundant DNS service anywhere. Each node has multiple servers and is connected by several Tier 1 carriers to the Internet.
Faster - Comodo uses strategically placed nodes are located at the most optimal intersections of the Internet. Unlike most DNS providers, the Comodo our request routing technology means that no matter where you are located in the world, your DNS requests are answered by the closest available set of servers, resulting in information becoming available faster and more reliably than ever before.
Smarter - Comodo's highly structured DNS system and guide pages get you where you want to be, when you inadvertently attempt to go to a site that doesn't exist. Parked' or 'not in use' domains are automatically detected and forwarded.
Safer - As a leading provider of computer security solutions, Comodo is keenly aware of the dangers that plague the Internet today. SecureDNS helps users keep safe online with its malware domain filtering feature. SecureDNS references a real-time block list (RBL) of harmful websites (i.e. phishing sites, malware sites, spyware sites, and parked domains that may contain excessive advertising including pop-up and/or pop-under advertisements, etc.) and will warn you whenever you attempt to access a site containing potentially threatening content. Additionally, our 'name cache invalidation' solution signals the Comodo Secure DNS recursive servers whenever a DNS record is updated - fundamentally eliminating the concept of a TTL. Directing your requests through highly secure servers can also reduce your exposure to the DNS Cache Poisoning attacks that may affect everybody else using your ISP.
