Change Your DNS Easily with DNS Jumper

If you are a regular reader of the blog you may have read the following articles about DNS (Domain Name System) and how changing your default DNS settings on your PC to a service such as OpenDNS or Google’s Public DNS can result in a faster (and safer) internet experience. For example I use the DNS settings that is provided by OpenDNS on all of my computers.

OpenDNS home OpenDNS … Something to try…

Google’s Public DNS Resolution Service

The DNS protocol is an important part of the web’s infrastructure, serving as the Internet’s phone book: every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup. Complex pages often require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading, so your computer may be performing hundreds of lookups a day. – Google Public DNS

When I composed those articles I wondered how many people actually followed up and changed their DNS settings, for fear they would mess up their computers?

Today I ran across a small software utility called DNS Jumper that you simply download, run, and mouse click a button to select which DNS service you would like to use. This little utility does all the work for you. If you desire to return to your default DNS settings, you simply mouse click on DNS Default and your settings revert to the original settings. This utility is portable and makes for a nice addition to the tech toolbox.

    1. Velociraptor,

      I am getting an error on the new version… I am using Windows 7… DNS Jumper will not load, as a result.

      Error I am receiving is: Line-1: Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.

    1. Arafat,

      The version (and link) to version 1.02, that I have reflected in the article is working perfectly. I cannot get version 1.03 to work for me on Windows 7. I have contacted the developer to report the problem.

      Thanks for commenting about this!

      Rick
