1st / March / 2016 - by Beverly Back by popular demand, we are in the process of updating all of our speed tests, feature comparisons, and pricing charts to meet the current month's reports. We will be updating all reviews and reports on a monthly basis. We've also decided to use multiple third party monitoring platforms in addition to Pingdom (more coming soon) so as to not allow any biases to shine through.

Due to time and budget constraints, we will now be updating only once a month rather than weekly. Updates will be issued in the first week of every month. We apologize for any inconvenience.

More big updates - big enough to warrant taking down the site over the weekend to give us time to catch up on everything.
We got rid of the scoring system at the bottom of each review - it was hard to grade each provider without letting any bias at all seep in - so now the Review section is just information about each provider, compiled in bite-sized chunks along with links to the sources where we received our info.
UltraDNS is back on top of the speed comparisons this week, after a rough week last week. European, American, and overall speeds for the past week can be found here.
Cotendo is officially out of the speed comparisons, after being non-responsive for over two weeks. Whether it's just Pingdom's tests being incompatible with their network, or if it's major problems with their service, it's impossible to rank Cotendo at the moment.
As always we're looking for user submissions - submit a review or just send us a message, we'd love to hear from you!
Welcome to DNS Comparison
You've arrived at the best source for DNS provider information on the internet. We're focused on giving you the most accurate information possible - with rankings based on the most current statistics available, and reviews based on actual user experience.
Why We Started
DNS Comparison was started in January of 2010 by a group of IT professionals and DNS experts as a way to compile accurate statistics and reviews about the most popular and highly used DNS companies. There are a lot of other websites that offer the same thing, but there's a big difference - accuracy.
Rules for Submissions
If you'd like to review a DNS provider's service for our site, we welcome your submission. Our moderators must read and approve your review before it gets posted on our site. We have a general set of guidelines that you must follow in order to have your review published.
Why use DNS Comparison?
Our focus is on giving the facts without the bias. We examine the key factors that determine the quality of the service provided: speed, reliability, network strength, ease of use, customer support, and price. All of the information we post will have statistics to back it up, and all user-submitted reviews will be moderated to ensure the information they provide is accurate.
