Execute the nameserver-benchmark and see what's best for you:

  • @Nam Gi VU: don't know why you bring up "dnsbenchmark", never said anything about "dnsbenchmark". i talked about "namesaver-benchmark" ...

DNS Benchmark will tell you which is the fastest.


as for high performance: running your own nameserver will always be the best DNS server for your working set.
