DNS Resolver: Google Internet Accelerator

Google's official blog post on Thursday announced the launch of its own public DNS resolving service called Google Public DNS - as part of Google's effort to accelerate the speed of the internet and for general users satisfaction.

DNS - Domain Name Service automatically translates domain names into associated numerical IP addresses to connect the client's Web browser to the Web server at that address. Whose services at present falls on Internet Service Provider (ISP), but by this launch Internet users will rely on Google rather than their ISP to take them to the Websites.

Google's product manager, Prem Ramaswami, stated in the post that research has shown that speed matters to Internet users, so over the past several months that its engineers have been working to make improvements to Google public DNS resolver to make users' web-surfing experiences faster, safer and more reliable.

This announcement, however, has generated debate on the side of analysts - stressing that Google has established a separate Privacy Policy for Google Public DNS that promises to delete temporary logs, containing IP addresses associated with DNS queries within 24 to 48 hours of launch. And DNS being a core Internet protocol prompt concerns from those already worried about Google's powerful holds on the web.

Generally, experts on internet protocol views this latest move by Google as a positive trend, given the expected result of improvements on DNS resolver services.
