Why does DNS matter?
The Domain Name System (DNS) protocol
This Protocol is a very important part of the Internet's infrastructure!
Basicaly it is like a Phone Book but for Compter Web Communication.
Acting as your Internet's phone book: every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup.

More Complex pages with multiple IFrames (IFrame is like a browser window inside that webpage) often require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading.

Your computer may be performing hundreds of lookups a day.

Here are some Free Public Secure DNS Servers:

Comodo Secure DNS
I Recommend this Service this is what i use to Bypass my ISP Blocks on KAT!

Providing you try to access kat using the "HTTPS" Protocol:
it does not get redirected to the UK's High Court Block Order Page

Free for: Personal use only
DNS Addresses: and

Comodo Secure DNS offers a simple free service for personal use.

It is preconfigured to block harmful websites, such as those containing malware,
spyware and phishing attempts.
Additionally, it claims to offer a more reliable,
faster and smarter DNS service than those provided by most ISPs.


When a site is blocked a warning page is displayed.
It shows the reason why the page is blocked
This Page also allows the user to disregard and continue to the blocked site anyway.
When a user continues to a blocked site, he or she can choose how long to allow access to the site.

In the case of nonexistent or unresponsive domains:
users see a page called Comodo Secure DNS Search.
Suggested search terms or phrases are displayed based upon the domain they're trying to visit,
in addition to a search field.

One big downside of the search:
Although the site says the results are powered by Yahoo,
only sponsored links are given and are not true search results.

Keep an eye out for future updates from Comodo.
Currently in beta, Comodo SecureDNS 2.0 offers:
customizable content filtering and is also being marketing towards businesses.

GreenTeam Internet
Free for: Personal or commercial use

DNS Addresses: and

GreenTeam Internet provides both free and premium services for homes and small businesses.
Its free preconfigured service automatically blocks:
malware and phishing sites, advertisements and adult-related content,
including aggressive, violent and drug-related sites.


When you create a free account you can customize the content filtering
by choosing among three predefined protection levels and 47 predefined categories,
and you can create custom whitelists and blacklists.

Norton ConnectSafe
Free for: Personal use

DNS Addresses: Vary based upon desired protection
Norton ConnectSafe provides three preconfigured DNS servers,
free for personal use with no account needed:
Security: and
The most basic service that automatically blocks malware, phishing and scam sites.


Security + Pornography: and
Adds blocking of sexually explicit material.

Security + Pornography + Other: and
Adds blocking of other mature content, like alcohol, crime, drugs and gambling.

Free for: Personal or business use for Enhanced DNS

DNS addresses: and

FamilyShield DNS addresses: and
OpenDNS is one of the most popular third-party DNS providers around,
offering both free and premium services for homes and businesses.
Its most basic free service is called Enhanced DNS,
which is provided via the company's main DNS addresses
and is preconfigured to block malware and phishing sites.

They do log your activity but if you setup a free account:

You can clear the logged data via your control panel


When a webpage is blocked, users see a simple page saying it's blocked and why.
Network administrators who are using a free or paid account can add
a note and contact form to the page so the user can request the website be unblocked.
When using the Umbrella services on a business network,
administrators can enter bypass codes to instantly unblock websites.
Similar functionality is available when using the OpenDNS home services on a Netgear router
(according to Netgear, most of its newer routers support it) with Netgear's Live Parental Controls.

OpenDNS also offers different service options for personal home use:

OpenDNS FamilyShield: Similar to Enhanced DNS, but also preconfigured to block adult content.

OpenDNS Home: Similar to Enhanced DNS, but offers customizable filtering and security options,
including white- and blacklists, customizable messages for blocked pages and basic logs and stats.
It uses the same main addresses as Enhanced DNS but requires you to create an account.

Some Extra DNS Servers: for ISP Block Bypass

This is actually funny....because I was messing with DNS servers recently after reading a certain paranoid forum post about security and safety
May I share my findings with you:
Unlike OpenDNS, Comodo, Norton or Google

these DNS servers I found below do NOT log your queries. They also have their own websites, easy to find and read their goals:

FreeDNS — open, free and public DNS — “” and “”
DNS.Watch — free, no logging, DNSSEC enabled – “” and “” also IPv6“2001:1608:10:25::1c04:b12f” and “2001:1608:10:25::9249:d69b”
Censurfridns.DK — two Danish uncensored DNS servers – “” and “” also IPv6“2001:67c:28a4::” and “2002:d596:2a92:1:71:53::”

Excellent VPN providers have their own DNS servers. Pays to search these out and use them system wide. The one I use works well with or without vpn.

Alternative, you should try DNSCrypt:

This more flexsible, suitable for any network system, secure with cryptographic signatures etc.
DNSCrypt is a protocol that authenticates communications between a DNS client and a DNS resolver. It prevents DNS spoofing. It uses cryptographic signatures to verify that responses originate from the chosen DNS resolver and haven't been tampered with.
Implementations are available for most operating systems, including Linux, OSX, Android, iOS, BSD and Windows.
DNSCrypt is not affiliated with any company or organization, is a documented protocol using highly secure, non-NIST cryptography, and its reference implementations are open source and released under a very liberal license.
Please note that DNSCrypt is not a replacement for a VPN, as it only authenticates DNS traffic, and doesn't prevent "DNS leaks", or third-party DNS resolvers from logging your activity.
