    Hi

    After having some problems with Googles nameservers (resolvers have no udp connection (filtred/banned)) don't know how this happen and how to fix it [​IMG]

    So i want to ask if it is using the first one and if fails then the second one and then the third or it is using all together?

    Also which one offer good performance and high uptime?

    I already try to use Opendns and level3 ones but i got again the same issues :(

    Now i am using an unknown one without problems but i am getting very high ping time at 200ms compared to 5ms that the rest can offer :(

    Thanks

    besides web host provided nameservers, only ever use Google 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and always work on 100s of Centmin Mod LEMP VPS and dedicated installs.

    If you are being blocked from Google nameservers, that it could be either your server's IP is blacklisted for spam etc and/or it's located in a country with legal/financial embargo's banning Google from doing business with that country.
