namebench is an easy-to-use program that permits users to run benchmarks on DNS servers, in order to find the fastest ones available to your computer.

Installation is not a prerequisite; the program is immediately initialized with one click, necessary for extracting the package.

In this case, you can drop the executable file anywhere on the computer and run it directly. It is also possible to run the tool on any machine from a pen drive or external drive.

Good news is that namebench does not add new entries to the Windows Registry, Start menu or any other part of the computer, leaving the HDD clean after removal.

The interface is represented by a standard window with a plain and simple layout, where you can specify the name servers and include global DNS providers along with best available regional DNS services.

In addition, it is possible to include censorship checks, upload and analyze your anonymized results to speed up Internet connections, as well as to establish the number of queries.

Benchmarking may take a while to finish, during which system resources consumption is low. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, as the app did not hang or crash. Overall, namebench is a fine software application that attracts users through simple and efficient features.
