Name Bench is a great way to test different DNS speeds you might be using.

A lot of individuals don't necessarily think about the speed of their DNS. What you might not realize is that your system is running a lot slower than it should be simply because of the server that you are using. If you could change your server in order to improve your computer and internet speed, this would obviously be something you would be interested in. One way for you to test this particular speed without even downloading a program to your computer is known as Name Bench. This program has been specifically designed to help test the DNS speed that you are running on.


Utilizing Name Bench is a lot easier than you might think because there is absolutely no download available. You do everything from the internet, saving valuable space on your system. This will also automatically test the speed of your DNS so that you are able to determine if you need to change servers. If you find that the server that you are using is incredibly slow, this is a red flag as to why you need to change servers. There are many different servers out there that you can easily utilize, so this should not be a problem when it comes to changing the option you are using.


A major feature and benefit of using Name Bench is the fact that it can test your server speed without you having to download a program to your computer. Having this test done on the internet is one of the best ways for you to improve the overall functioning of your computer when browsing the web. Not many people realize that part of their speed problems are associated with the server that they are connected to. If you are able to determine if this truly is the problem, you will be able to change servers as you see fit. There's nothing better than having a program like Name Bench that you can rely on to test all of your speed problems.


There is absolutely no download or installation involved with Name Bench. It does all of the testing right on the internet, so all you need to make sure that you have is a solid Wi-Fi connection. Once you are connected to the internet, Name Bench will be able to test the speed of your server and give you the results immediately. You can then make the decision on whether or not it is worth your time to change servers in order to improve your internet speed. This can help to improve the overall productivity of your computer when in use.
