It later was part of GTE internetworking when they acquired BBNplanet, was briefly part of Verizon when BellAtlantic acq 4.2.2.2 is one of six (4.2.2.1 through 4.2.2.6) DNS servers run by Level 3 Communications, a Tier 1 ISP. These are supposed to be used by Level 3 customers only, although they have gone into general use over the years. 4.2.2.2 isn t a public DNS, it is a private DNS for official use by "Level 3" customers only.

I have never used this address even though I was aware of it. It always seemed like a bad idea to use abuse a public DNS server in this way. I wonder how much bandwidth per day is spend on simply responding to ICMP requests.

Hi, Dns server gives you the ability to type in google.com instead of 172.217.20.206. Sometimes they're called name servers because they provide well "names" for websites.

The free DNS servers listed above as Level 3 will automatically route to the nearest DNS server operated by Level 3 Communications, the company that provides most of the ISPs in the US their access to the internet backbone.

Switching to 8.8.8.8 or 4.2.2.2 on those connections drastically improved web browsing. blhack on Apr 21, 2010 Another problem is that some ISP DNS servers will redirect you to one of their landing pages when you mis-type a URL.
