    I like it, I use B version, it is better than FamilyShield from OpenDNS, which blocks everything, that moves, like a porno, I wonder, when it will block youtube as well. :rolleyes:

    I am using the old (original) Norton DNS IP addresses and have not noticed any issues.

    Can you say more about what you're looking for in an alternate DNS service? Speed? Content filtering?

    It does seem to take them days to weeks to pick up newly registered sites. If that's not an issue then I find nothing else wrong with it. I've also found no benefit either. YMMV.

    You may also want to read the following thread, where I started a discussion about Norton DNS. In this case, it wouldn't block phishing domains that Norton SafeWeb flagged with Caution.
    Norton DNS gets its data from Norton SafeWeb.

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=321738

    If you're interested in phishing protection, then I'd go with OpenDNS. OpenDNS also recently released DNSCrypt, which encrypts the DNS queries. So, this was a no brainer for me. :)

    On the other hand, if you're looking into protecting yourself against malicious websites, then Norton DNS is pretty good.

    It depends on what you want from such kind of service, as user Victek123 mentioned.

    Is it possible do disable the predicition/correction url of norton dns ?

    For my search in firefox i always use the adress bar (like the omnibox of chrome) and if i just use one keyword i've got an error from norton : "host not found"...
    I stop using norton dns because of that, is it possible to solve it ?

    Thanks.
