OpenDNS.ocm

OpenDNS is a free (as in beer) set of DNS servers that anyone can use. It comes with typo correction and some anti-phishing features. I just switched to these at home and did a quick ping http://www.google.ocm to see if it was working. It worked perfectly, correcting the suffix to “com”.

This should save me a lot of time, given my propensity for fat-fingering URIs.

If you are a bind user, just add this to your named.conf


forwarders {
   // OpenDNS
   208.67.222.222;
   208.67.220.220;
   // Lower priority servers here
};
