DNS issues again? (intermittent)

Unsure if this is affecting multiple users but it seems the DNS servers are failing over the last 30 mins. Have tried on multiple machines and can replicate the issue. I am able to reach addresses using IP addresses but cannot resolve site names using the plusnet DNS settings.
This seems to come and go. I rebooted my router but still having the same issues and so changed my DNS settings over to use 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4. Is anyone else having the same issues?

All i did was redirect the DNS to google's and that seemed to fix the issue. I also have another line here with another ISP and everythings working fine on that one. Ill change my DNS back soon and see if its working again.

Re: DNS issues again? (intermittent)

I've been having a few issues to actually, but I was unsure if it's my connection, as sunce changing to fibre it's been, well not that clever.
But looking at my Sam Knows graph, and seeing this thread, I think this could be part of my problem.  
From my Sam Knows DNS report:
