    I changed our company over to OpenDNS’ recursive platform last year after reading a lot about it. Its helped out a lot with monitoring the sites for the employees. Resolution speed is fairly normal, nothing crazy, but over all a good product. Seems to be very secure as well.

    Using OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 instead of Google DNS 8.8.8.8 immediately got back my #facebook access in Vietnam. A new Google DNS fail: it could not resolve facebook.com just like domestic Vietnamese DNS servers.

    This is NOT a DNS hosting service. It’s an alternative to your ISP’s DNS, or Google’s anycast DNS service.

    Sure it is. It’s a Recursive DNS hosting service. The rest are Authoritative services.

    OpenDNS has provided me with a first line of internet security for years, and is highly regarded & praised, and recommended to others. For my (low) level of knowledge, the combination of your service and of Sophos provides me stress-free access to the ‘net, which I believe is adequate for normal usage. Many thanks, indeed.
