There was a time when using OpenDNS was of amazing help, a time when CDNs and geoIP were just emerging. Now those technologies are mandatory for our social media lifes. So some weeks ago I have experienced issues accessing many sites that used Akamai CDN: facebook.com, apple.com to highlight some. Then, after googling for a while, found some interesting articles:

In short, I’m back to local DNS and trusting my ISP DNS. Just noticed that I were using many wifi networks: at the coffee, at work, at home, at the airport, etc. And never minded that I were not using OpenDNS, actually I was complaining about websites not using a CDN, even when Cloudflare is a free CDN that just works (unless you live in China).

So, that is it. Thanks OpenDNS for the last amazing 6 years, you saved me lots of time!

Blessings!
