Setting up a local DNS server on your Synology NAS?
« on: January 29, 2019, 22:51 »
I think there are some inherent benefits to it as opposed to relying on your router to resolve the DNS for every websites you visited each time you open a web browser. I found that pointing to the internal DNS on the NAS within the home network domain does help with caching pages especially websites that has tons of images and script running behind the scene. I experiment it and found that using locally setup DNS server as compared to the ones like OpenDNS or Google.com which had been configured on the router did not load webpages faster when compared to using a locally setup DNS server.

Try it especially for those who wish to cut down the waiting time for webpages to load, especially those graphic-laden webistes.
