Cloudflare has launched its own custom DNS service that will help speed up users Internet and improve the privacy of the users Internet connection. The service can be utilized by going to the URL: https://22.214.171.124. Cloudflare is claiming it be the Internet’s fastest and privacy first customer DNS service. The company is also stating that it will provide more privacy over GoogleDNS and OpenDNS.
DNS services provided by the Internet Service Provider is often slow, unstable and won’t be able to handle a large amount of traffic, furthermore, ISPs can track the websites you visited which also presents privacy problems.
Cloudflare has worked with APNIC to offer its DNS services through 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
“We talked to the APNIC team about how we wanted to create a privacy-first, extremely fast DNS system,” explains Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince. “We offered Cloudflare’s network to receive and study the garbage traffic in exchange for being able to offer a DNS resolver on the memorable IPs. And, with that, 184.108.40.206 was born.”
It’s important to note that this DNS service launched by Cloudflare isn’t going to solve all your privacy issues while experts are suggesting that it is better to use our private VPN if you the users don’t want your web activity to be tracked.
“[I]t’s been depressing to us to watch all too frequently how DNS can be used as a tool of censorship against many of the groups we protect. While we’re good at stopping cyber attacks, if a consumer’s DNS gets blocked there’s been nothing we could do to help,” Prince said in blog post.
The company stated that this new service is going to help the consumers to keep some data private from Internet Service Providers and Cloudflare has pledged to both never write users’ IP addresses to disk and that they’ll purge all logs from their system after 24 hours.
