Then there is the DNS Server, which has the task of responding to the request and finally there is the Authority Zone where the domains are located (.net, .es, .com, etc.).


      This synchronization must be performed in an extremely fast time, we are talking about milliseconds. And the faster this process occurs, the faster it will offer us the page or site we are looking for. So if we have a Fast DNS , you already know what it would imply and that is why we can change it via applications or manually.

In it we will select the Modify network option, this action will generate more options to display and we select Advanced options. So we will choose in IP Settings the Static option .

      The next thing will be to enter the Google DNS number, we will do this as an example, you can use whatever you want most. So in the DNS 1 field we will put 8.8.8.8 and in DNS 2 we will write 8.8.4.4 and then click on the Save button. And that's it, in a very simple way we changed and configured DNS in Android.
