What is a public DNS resolver?

A public DNS resolver is a service that sends requests to name servers and orchestrates DNS lookup, the process that translates domain names into IP addresses.

Your public DNS resolver is most likely provided by your ISP by default. Typically, it’s slow and not very secure (your sensitive data can be easily compromised by ISP). We offer our fast and secure public DNS resolver that provides you with a quick response time and absolute privacy. And it’s free.
