Okay I don't know much about them, only that your ISP issues you them to allow you to access websites etc. But recently something happened to my internet & I can only access certain websites.
For instance I can come here, but I can't goto google, check email etc. So I read a little bit on them and found that there are free/fast/public servers for you to use, the only thing I am not sure about, is that is this safe? Like whoever owns these dns servers or whatever, can they see what websites I visit or anything personal I wouldn't just want anyone to know?
I am using a public one now, and it seems websites I visit load a lot faster, but this is just temporary until I can get through with my ISP support because I keep getting some lady that hardly speaks english -.- But if I have nothing to worry about with my privacy then I rather keep the ones I am using.
I also don't have a hosts file, I didn't think I needed one, but I added things like google.com and it doesn't help.
Thanks for any help guys/gals
