Top 5 best free DNS Servers - Mar 2022

Updated: Jun 24, 2022

Replacing your default DNS Server pre-configured by your ISP is the good way for:

  • Access websites are blocked in your country.

  • Lower latency in querying DNS Record.

  • Block some ads by third-party DNS.

In this article, I will check latency from 5 DNS Server that might be the best in the world:

  • Google DNS

  • Cloudflare DNS

  • Quad9 DNS.

  • OpenDNS.

  • AdGuard DNS.

Here is the table of features:

Latency check

I have checked latency when quering devops.airwallet365.com from 5 DNS Servers, the results as below:

  • Google DNS: 96 ms, 132 ms, 73 ms, 75 ms, 193 ms.

  • Cloudflare DNS: 55 ms, 65 ms, 64 ms, 55 ms, 66 ms.

  • Quad9 DNS: 58 ms, 188 ms, 100 ms, 82 ms, 86 ms.

  • Adguard DNS: 61 ms, 89 ms, 63 ms, 70 ms, 56 ms.

  • OpenDNS: 62 ms, 63 ms, 64 ms, 64 ms, 66 ms.

After this round, you can see the order: Average latency, lower is better:

  • Cloudflare DNS: 61 ms

  • OpenDNS: 63.8 ms

  • AdGuard DNS: 67.8 ms

  • Quad9 DNS: 102.8 ms

  • Google DNS: 113.8 ms

Double check again, I query hub.docker.com. The results as below:

  • Google DNS: 66 ms, 70 ms, 78 ms, 64 ms, 79 ms.

  • Cloudflare DNS: 52 ms, 62 ms, 67 ms, 63 ms, 59 ms.

  • Quad9 DNS: 113 ms, 133 ms, 69 ms, 86 ms, 116 ms.

  • Adguard DNS: 81 ms, 85 ms, 62 ms, 63 ms, 55 ms.

  • OpenDNS: 59 ms, 56 ms, 61 ms, 57 ms, 59 ms.

After the second round, you can see the order: Average latency, lower is better:

  • OpenDNS: 58.4 ms

  • Cloudflare DNS: 60.6 ms

  • AdGuard DNS: 69.2 ms

  • Google DNS: 71.4 ms

  • Quad9 DNS: 103.4 ms

As you can see from the results, OpenDNS & Cloudflare DNS have better performance than the other three.
