A New Public DNS for Europe


For the non-technical:

  1. DNS is an address book that is used every time you visit a website or your computer needs to get some data from somewhere on the internet.

  2. You can improve your security/life by having the address book simply not have entries for the dodgy websites, advertisers, trackers, so that information never gets to your machine.

  3. You can use any DNS address book you like, and this is a new public address book that claims to do so.

  4. The founders of this founded a paid-for address book called nextdns.io and I personally subscribe to this and use it on all my devices to make my life better.

  5. You don’t have to turn on all the filters - there are separate address books for adults and kids’ versions.
