OpenDNS

Switched to OpenDNS today.  Really easy.
It should be faster (well, that is if you’re on mainland USA – I’m not), with a bigger cache.
It’s smart too, if you do a typo like www.halans.om, it will automatically redirect to the correct .com address.
If you made some other typo, you’ll get a list of possibilities (this is where the advertising kicks in though, they gotta make money one way or the other)
And it adds anti-phishing, by blocking any (known) phishing URLs (PhishTank).
Let’s see how it copes with growth, from 243,470 requests on June 30, to 52,221,805 request yesterday.
