    OpenDNS for myself
    NortonDNS for others (friends, family, and customers).

    lol I'm the only one who uses Google DNS.

    I don't like the idea of my DNS blocking sites. It's too much of a pain to deal with a false positive and, for my setup, it isn't necessary.

    I'd much rather have the fastest, and that means my ISP as my primary and Google DNS as my backup.

    I use 3 different ones.
    OpenDNS primary
    My ISP 1st alternate
    an overseas DNS not affected by domestic domain blocking as the 2nd alternate

    Both my ISPs and Open DNS have failed at different times. By using ones not related to each other, it's unlikely that they'll ever all go down at once.

    I switch back and forth between Norton DNS and ClearCloud as preferred and alternate. I actually think either one of them is faster than my ISP, and I like the concept of a block list. It isn't something I plan on sticking with forever, but for now, it works. I voted for ClearCloud because so far, no one else had... but I've actually got Norton DNS as preferred.

    My own ISP DNS, the other are just too slow and block some safe sites.

    Thanks.:D

    ClearCloud because it's block page is superior to Norton's. Norton as backup.

    ClearCloud, because of its effectiveness and ability to report FPs.

    Right now I am back to my ISP's DNS server, I was useing seven or eight public DNS servers my ISP's DNS server has trouble with .TK addresses and other sites. I switched back to my ISP's DNS server because they (my ISP) started dropping my connection and giving DNS as the possible cause.

    OpenDNS is speedy for me compared to Norton DNS, ClearCloud DNS, and my ISP DNS server. I will check Google DNS soon.

    I'm using Unbound DNS server which resolves any domain name using authoritative servers. So the answer was "Other". :)

    i tried both Clearcloud and Norton but settled on Norton, thinking that maybe it would better because Norton is a bigger company and has more money tho throw away at a free DNS service...

    OpenDNS's FamilyShield, it works pretty well, though it blocks even legitimate webpages, but nobody is perfect. :rolleyes:

    I think so Yes :).

    But I mainly use OpenDNS for it's web content service wich I think is easy to manage, and works very well.
