How to set google DNS?

Most often, the problem with determining the IP address of a domain occurs at the level of your Internet provider. This happens because it either did not have time to update the DNS, and as a result will resolve your domain name through the old IP address, or it will not resolve at all, since there are simply no mentions of your domain on the provider's side. So, after registering a domain, you may receive: an error in the browser when you try to open your site, the page of the old hosting provider, or the page of the parking "stub" of your registrar after transferring the domain to other NS. In order to update domain resource records faster, we recommend using Google 's public DNS servers.

The advantage of using them is that the records are updated automatically with a short frequency, plus the Google company itself has tools for forcing the DNS records to be updated , the algorithms of which allow you to instantly poll the NS or SOA records of the domain to obtain the necessary data. You can reset the addressing for the domain directly via the link:

To install google DNS you need:

  1. on your local computer go to the section:
    [My computer -- Network -- Network and Sharing Center]
  2. [ left-click on the connected network -- Properties -- Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) ]
    set the parameters as shown in the screenshot:

An alternative method: open the command line in your operating system as an administrator (win + R - cmd) and execute the following commands.

  1. for the primary (primary) server:
     netsh interface ip add dns name="Wi-Fi" index=1
  2. for a secondary (reserve) server:
     netsh interface ip add dns name="Wi-Fi" index=2?
Parameter name = "Wi-Fi" - the name of your network interface, index - the index of the secondary and primary IP addresses of the DNS server.
Note: it is important to understand that in the name parameter you need to enter exactly the name of the connection that you use to access the Internet, by type - " Wireless network connection", "Local network", "Wi-Fi", "Ethernet" etc. d.
