Using Google Public DNS for IPv4 & IPv6 to speed up internet browsing, A resource for Web Designers, Developers & Internet Surfers in General

As Wikipedia explains,

 

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. Most prominently, it translates easily memorised domain names to the numerical IP addresses needed for the purpose of locating computer services and devices worldwide. By providing a worldwide, distributed keyword-based redirection service, the Domain Name System is an essential component of the functionality of the Internet.

 
Google’s Public DNS will speedup your computer internet connections performance with faster speed for domain name lookup.

For last three to two years I was using just ‘Design Portfolio | Mandar Apte’ as my title tag for my personal design portfolio website’s homepage i.e ‘Page Name | Website Name’.
