DNS and VPN have been coming to the rescue of internet users for years who want to connect to the internet faster, more free and much more secure. With the mobilization of the Internet, more devices are connected and more information is available on the Internet. Therefore, it is very natural that we have security concerns. Apart from this, it is not always possible to use the internet speed limits in our country or region to the end.

Cloudflare, one of the most experienced companies in the internet world, has turned the 1.1.1.1 DNS protocol into a mobile application. With the renewed services, it is possible to increase your internet speed and even reach the internet more safely while the speed increases.

What is 1.1.1.1?

1.1.1.1 is a fast and private way to browse the Internet. It is a public DNS resolver, but unlike most DNS resolvers, 1.1.1.1 is not selling user data to advertisers. The implementation of 1.1.1.1 makes it the fastest resolver out there.

What is DNS?

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the phonebook of the Internet. Humans access information online through domain names, like publish0x.com or google.com. Web browsers interact through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.

Why is DNS security important?

Standard DNS queries, which are required for almost all web traffic, create opportunities for DNS exploits such as DNS hijacking and man-in-the-middle attacks. These attacks can redirect a website’s inbound traffic to a fake copy of the site, collecting sensitive user information and exposing businesses to major liability. One of the best known ways to protect against DNS threats is to adopt the DNSSEC protocol.

Why use 1.1.1.1 instead of an ISP’s resolver?

The main reasons to switch to a third-party DNS resolver are security and performance. ISPs do not always use strong encryption on their DNS or support DNSSEC, which makes their DNS queries vulnerable to data breaches and exposes users to threats like man-in-the-middle attacks. In addition, ISPs often use DNS records to track their users’ activity and behavior. These resolvers don’t always have great speeds and when they get overloaded by heavy usage they become even more sluggish. If there is enough traffic on the network, an ISP’s recursor could stop answering requests altogether. In some cases attackers deliberately overload an ISP’s recursors, resulting in a denial-of-service.

 

Setup on Linux:

While these steps are for Ubuntu, most Linux distributions configure DNS settings through the Network Manager. Alternatively, your DNS settings can be specified in /etc/resolv.conf

  • Click the Applications icon on the left menu bar.
  • Click Settings, then Network.
  • Find your internet connection on the right pane, then click the gear icon.
  • Click the IPv4 or IPv6 tab to view your DNS settings.
  • Set the “Automatic” toggle on the DNS entry to Off. Provide the 1.1.1.1 DNS addresses in the DNS entries field:
    • For IPv4: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1
    • For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111,2606:4700:4700::1001
  • Click Apply, then restart your browser.
  • You’re all set! Your device now has faster, more private DNS servers.

 

Setup on MacOS:

  • Open System Preferences.
  • Search for DNS Servers and select it from the dropdown.
  • Click the + button to add a DNS Server and enter 1.1.1.1
  • Click + again and enter 1.0.0.1 (This is for redundancy.)
  • Click + again and enter 2606:4700:4700::1111 (This is for redundancy.)
  • Click + again and enter 2606:4700:4700::1001 (This is for redundancy.)
  • Click Ok, then click Apply.
  • You’re all set! Your device now has faster, more private DNS servers.

 

Setup on Windows:

  • Click on the Start menu, then click on Control Panel.
  • Click on Network and Internet.
  • Click on Change Adapter Settings.
  • Right click on the Wi-Fi network you are connected to, then click Properties.
  • Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (or Version 6 if desired).
  • Click Properties.
  • Write down any existing DNS server entries for future reference.
  • Click Use The Following DNS Server Addresses.
  • Replace those addresses with the 1.1.1.1 DNS addresses:
    • For IPv4: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1
    • For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001
  • Click OK, then Close.
  • Restart your browser.
  • You’re all set! Your device now has faster, more private DNS servers.
