[Tips & Tutorial] How to Change DNS Server on Windows 7, 8 and 10

Hi Folks,

What is DNS, did you heard this term before, let's start with starting. So DNS is Domain Name System and it converts website address which is its IP address the path where the website resides on the server. For example "facebook.com" = "" if you type this IP address in browser's url bar you you would reach "facebook.com". For "google.co.in" = "" but as you can see these are the numbers. So its very hard to remember these numbers for so many websites. DNS helps these numbers to give a name, DNS have a table for these numbers and their names. When you type a URL in the address bar and hit enter it first go to DNS server and ask for the IP address and then revert back to you. Website address to IP address conversion takes few seconds if the DNS is fast but it takes too long if DNS server is not so good.

Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives you a default DNS server and it may not be too good. Therefore you experience a slow internet connection but don't worry you can change it and it will help you to increase the website loading speed.
