    Which DNS service do you use and why? Is it more for security or speed or both? I usually use Google DNS. But use OpenDNS occasionally.

    I use my ISP's DNS servers. I don't feel the need to switch to anything else.

    My own adblocking, threat blocking black hole DNS server, a smart DNS service to spoof geolocation and several DNS servers that are provided by the VPN services I use. Setting up a recursive DNS server is a nice Linux project that gets you right into the back end of the Internet and ends your dependence on 3rd party servers. A VPS server that can handle it is pretty minimal and costs just a few dollars a year. For speed, I set up a a caching forwarding server on a Raspberry Pi on my LAN. Query latency is reduced from several hundred milliseconds to around 8 once it is cached in the Pi.
