DNS Timing

What is this tool?

The DNS Timing Report will test to see how long it takes for your DNS servers to respond, taking many factors into consideration (timeouts, lame delegations, etc.), and gives you a score (from an F to an A+). It then lists any problems (such as a slow response, timeouts, etc.). Normally, you would enter www.example.com and use the A record (you can use other hosts or records, but the timing is typically the same). This test can be useful in comparing two different web hosts that provide DNS service.

How do the results help me?
