Increase your Internet speed with OpenDNS-Windows 7

First we want to know What is meant by DNS and what is OpenDNS?
DNS-Domain Name System, It translates Internet domain and hist names to IP addresses.
DNS automatically converts te names which type in our browser to the IP address of web servers hosting sites.
It is a DNS resolution service which extends features like misspelling correction, phishing protection and content filtering.
Mispeeling correction means if the user types .og instead of .org it will automatically consider as .org.
Phishing Protection: Fake log in or fake website protection for more secure.
