Free tool for changing DNS settings

DNS Jumper is a free tool perfect for network development & IT personnel who need to make quick modifications to their Domain Name Server (DNS). This is vital for a number of purposes, from finding secure connections to accessing otherwise blocked sites. Also, maintenance teams can use it to check IP response times.

For this specialized purpose, DNS Jumper is partly similar to other DNS utility apps like namebench and NetSetMan. These apps share some similar capabilities for tweaking DNS settings but the Jumper remains the only one with its full set of features.

For specialized networking use

Despite its specialized purpose and wide range of DNS-related applications, DNS Jumper comes in a very small file size of only 546.69KB–smaller than mid-range image files or a single MP3 song. Even for people without a constant need to make changes to their DNS configurations–like casual users, students, or other non-professional users–they can keep this app without worrying much about storage space or hardware resources.

To use the app to its fullest, there is a need for technical skills and an understanding of how internet communication works. However, you can always follow forums and tutorials to perform any of the program’s specialized activities. With the right settings, you can access blocked sites, choose which server you want to connect to or set restrictions on your system to protect children from inappropriate content.

Lastly, all the settings you create or reconfigure during your session can be saved in profiles, which you can just conveniently pull up the next time you need them. Instead of providing automatically generated configurations, this app lets you build them manually, allowing you to find the best possible setup for your device. You can also clear them at once with the Flush DNS command.

Covering all bases

One of the most common uses of this app is to let you choose the best network connection. Typically, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) automatically routes you to the best path available, connecting your device to the optimal server at a given time. However, with this app, you can manually choose your connections. This means that if you try another connection and it shows better transfer speeds, then you can just switch there.

However, if you’re not looking for a wide-range DNS configuration app, there are other better apps for specialized applications than DNS Jumper. For example, if you’re looking for a benchmark utility that’s faster and can offer individualized search results, namebench is a better alternative. Or if you’re looking for a smooth browsing experience between preset profiles, NetSetMan is a recommended solution.

Once the gold standard

While there remains no software that covers the large ground that DNS Jumper does, a number of separate software can beat it in specialized applications. Unless you have a wide variety with your DNS configuration requirements, you can try other alternatives. However, with its portability, small file size, and capabilities, this DNS configuration platform isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

This program supports the following Windows platforms: 11, 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista.
