I’m currently testing your new DNS Service. Your servers are one of the fastest to come back with a query. However, the response I get may not be the closest one to my location.
I’m located in Limoges (20 mins from Ottawa, Ontario) and here’s the NSLOOKUP for youtube.com based from Google DNS and Cloudflare DNS…
PS C:\Windows\system32> nslookup - 126.96.36.199 Default Server: dns.google Address: 188.8.131.52 > youtube.com Server: dns.google Address: 184.108.40.206 Non-authoritative answer: Name: youtube.com Addresses: 2607:f8b0:4020:806::200e 220.127.116.11 > 18.104.22.168 Server: dns.google Address: 22.214.171.124 Name: yul03s04-in-f14.1e100.net Address: 126.96.36.199 ====== PS C:\Windows\system32> nslookup - 188.8.131.52 Default Server: one.one.one.one Address: 184.108.40.206 > youtube.com Server: one.one.one.one Address: 220.127.116.11 Non-authoritative answer: Name: youtube.com Addresses: 2607:f8b0:4006:808::200e 18.104.22.168 > 22.214.171.124 Server: one.one.one.one Address: 126.96.36.199 Name: lax30s03-in-f14.1e100.net Address: 188.8.131.52
Thanks to Google, they put airport codes in the hostname and your DNS server brought me to a Los Angeles Server of Youtube.com.
I’ve also tested a Speedtest using the PS4 while using Google DNS and Cloudflare. I don’t know which PSN Network Server I get redirected to, but everytime, Cloudflare must be redirecting me to a farther location as the speed is about half from what I get when Google DNS is configured. Not a very accurate test, I agree, but still interesting.
My provider is Bell Fibe and here’s my IP Info.
IP Address 70.XX.YYY.52
IP Location Limoges, Ontario (CA)
Host Name embnonXXXw-grc-05-70-XX-YYY-52.dsl.bell.ca
ISP Bell Canada
Interesting results. Maybe it can help improve the service.
