Comodo DNS is also good. It's based on ultraDNS and even uses some of the same servers...

Good find ;D Comodo DNS doesn't exist, as you've noticed it's just rented servers from UltraDNS, and UltraDNS manages everything, Comodo just pays to put their name on it.

Can we expect Avast DNS?

Probably not

Nice find, NMB !

Sorry Logos Comodo Secure DNS does exist see for yourself http://www.comodo.com/secure-dns/index.html

Chris Thomas you don't have to used DNS if your using Hostsman, Hostsman does almost the same thing like DNS if I'm not mistaken.

I think I was wrong

Norton DNS is just like Comodo DNS

I am not 100% sure

Dynamic Network Services (Dyn Inc.) is Norton's partner for Norton DNS. They manage our DNS network infrastructure and provide us with their many years of deep DNS experience

But I read this here

Yeah, I've been using Dyndns.com for years (my website is purchased through them), and they were one of the first that I saw releasing their own DNS service after OpenDNS started up.

I guess they're just piggybacking on their service, which wouldn't be such a bad thing.

I wasn't sure about Norton, as the DNS IPs show a Symantec server...but this could be arranged too...I'll see your link and faq page now...

Well saying it doesn't exist is a stretch. It does exist but uses servers from UltraDNS and redirects you to a Comodo page for notification of blocked or unavailable sites. I think it's more secure than the usual UltraDNS is just like the Comodo Dragon browser is based on Chrome but supposedly is more secure and removes the privacy issues that Chrome has.

if you had a link to a page (from Comodo, forums or else...) describing this process I wouldn't mind, because I always thought Comodo wasn't managing anything concerning this DNS service...

I found this but I have had a few times when it has worked too. I just didn't save them.

I ditched Norton. It is too aggressive. It was blocking the entire Brothersoft website and clicking the detailed report was linking to the Brothersoft site. Nice catch-22 there. Back to old reliable OpenDNS.

NortonDNS no longer blocks Brothersoft website.

I'm trying out NortonDNS since the free OpenDNS no longer blocks malware sites, just phishing.
