The first visit to any site takes forever to load

Posted on

Problem :

I suspect I might have a DNS problem.

Whenever I try to access any website at all, it will take dozens of seconds to load in the first time. Any subsequent access will load just fine.

If I try to ping a non-visited web address, it will hang for a few seconds before displaying the normal output.

How can I troubleshoot my DNS issues?

Solution :

Changing DNS servers solved the issue.

A great way to benchmark DNS server performances is using the DNS Benchmark by Steve Gibson, it tests the performance of your current DNS servers and a up-to-date list of publicly available servers as well.
