There are thousands of infected and fraudulent Web sites on the Internet, with new ones popping up every day. So how do you know if a site is safe to visit? Simple. Use one of the DNS filtering services. These services automatically block unsafe Web sites and safe guards your device when you surf the Web.
If you are or were a user of OpenDNS service you might know by now that the FREE service for business is coming to its end. OpenDNS evolved and changing its service offerings and as of March 15, 2012 is trying to sign you up as a subscriber to use their DNS services. I have seen may complaints and posts in last few days as people are getting upset with the offering as OpenDNS has very strange if not too clear licensing structure. The price can be too expensive for some of small businesses or even enterprise to pay for the service.
The good news is that there are alternative providers for DNS filtering and are FREE or they also provide additional so called PRO services for a small fees.
