Testing To Ensure You're Using OpenDNS Correctly


OpenDNS provides two different URLs that enable you to test and verify the successful configuration of OpenDNS on a home network. The OpenDNS test URLs are described in the following table.

OpenDNS Test URL


 Correctly Configured


 Incorrectly Configured




 An OpenDNS Web page with a warning icon and  says,“Phishing Site Blocked!”







If these tests return results other than those described in the table, further troubleshooting may be required. To begin, we suggest to contact your ISP and confirm that they are not running a proxy. Also ask them if they allow 3rd-party DNS services, such as OpenDNS or Google DNS. You might also want to follow the instructions for configuring OpenDNS on each computer, which are available here in addition to our router configuration instructions
