DNS Benchmark

Hi,

Whenever I run the BENCHMARK DNS test, ULTRADNS, GOOGLE, OPENDNS has better results than cloudflare, and why does dnsperf report that cloud is the fastest ???

DNSperf tests and aggregates from multiple location worldwide over time. You are testing from a single machine in a single location. Cloudflare (nor any other DNS provider or internet service) can’t be the fastest from everywhere all the time.

Hi,

I don’t understand why google has better performance, because as far as i know they don’t have dns server in my country so i expected equivalent performance cloudflare.
