DNS is the first step that is done before you’re able to open a webpage. The system asks the DNS server (a machine with a name directory simmiliar to a phone book) for the IP adress (like a network phone number) so your PC knows where to look for the page.
Often these DNS servers are slow, have old data or are even used to censor the internet.
I’ve found the free google DNS servers to be faster than the standard ones and they also don’t censor and are always up to date.
Put these into your networking connection settings and enjoy faster websurfing.

Yes, these are IP adresses, even when they look funny.
