Searching for boxup.org A record at ns3.boxup.org. Reports an answer.
Looking up at ns3.boxup.org.... Reports 1 A record(s). 32ms.
Looking up at ns2.boxup.org.... Reports 1 A record(s). 52ms.
Looking up at ns1.boxup.org.... Reports 1 A record(s). 27ms.
Average of all 3 nameservers: 37ms (plus 144ms overhead).
Took off 3 points for ".org" TLD (extra lookups may be required to find the parent servers).
Note: The 144ms overhead is the time it takes to get your NS records from the parent servers, and indicates a worst-case scenario (normally, the resolving DNS server would have the common parent server entries cached, and would know the parent server(s) that were responding most quickly).
The best times since the last time this web server was last restarted are: 3ms average response, plus 11ms overhead.
Note that these times are from a server located in the United States; if most of the people using your DNS are outside of the United States, your actual results may be better than what is shown here.
A rating of 'B' or higher is generally good (this tool is very picky!). This tool is designed to make an educated guess about speed, and to point out potential factors that may reduce the DNS speed, and it is not perfect.
