Cloudflare launched their new free public DNS service yesterday (yeah, funny date to make product announcement on April 1st). But this is no joke. They actually launched this product. In a nutshell, it’s a service like OpenDNS or Google DNS, except it’s the fastest of them all and cares about user privacy.
Primary DNS: 22.214.171.124
Secondary DNS: 126.96.36.199
It is yet unknown if Cloudflare DNS provides any other security features like cache poisoning protection, anti-phishing and malware blocking. Still waiting for their reply on this one, will update as I receive more info.
I’ve also included it on my public DNS list where I feature all DNS services that matter.
I was sure this has been already posted on my blog, but I guess I was wrong (or was it my old blog). Anyway, here they are, listed again. Most widely known and used DNS servers that can be used as alternative to the DNS servers provided by your ISP. In general, most users don’t really need to use these, but those who want extra security in a form of blocking websites that are serving malware or host phishing sites along with DNS poisoning defense, these alternative DNS servers can be useful. Some (like Norton ConnectSafe also offer blocking of porn, but you have to visit their webpage for those IP addresses, I’m only listing the antimalware/antiphishing one). Instructions to use each are also provided on their webpages if you don’t know how to set them up.
188.8.131.52 (Blocklist, DNSSEC, No EDNS Client-Subnet)
