Speed Up Browsing By DNS Cache

June 2017




Issue


I have read that we can speed up browsing by DNS cache, how can i do so at home?

Solution

  • Each time you browse a web site on the internet, the actual site name you type is resolved to an IP address. This translation is effected through what is called the DNS (Domain Name System). This DNS information is stored in your computer so that each time you type a web address, a record of its IP address is stored so that it can be recalled later without having to retrieve it again. One way to speed up your browsing experience is to increase this DNS cache in windows XP. You will need to modify registry for this.
  • Start notepad & enter the following text into it: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic esDnscache\Parameters]
    "CacheHashTableBucketSize"=dword:00000001 "CacheHashTableSize"=dword:00000180"MaxCacheEntryT tILimit"=dword:0000fa00 "MaxSOACacheEntryTtILimit"=dword:0000012d 
  • Save this file, naming it dnscache.reg .
  • Double click on the file in windows explorer & merge it into your registry.
