Your entire DNS browsing history may be registered by your ISP and will so be sold to anye who wishes.
DNS is what sends you to the right site when you browse the Internet, but it is also unencrypted, and reveals your entire browsing history. The private mode of your browser does nothing, and the little green lock ic that indicates a secure cnecti does not help either.
DNS is also slow. So in order to solve these two problems, you have to change your DNS provider for e that is both private and fast. This is the new Cloudflare 126.96.36.199 service
What is DNS?
When you type something like Cult of Mac in your browser, a computer somewhere (usually your Internet provider) looks for the actual IP address the address of this site. The comm analogy is that of a phe book, which would be nice if somee under 30 knew what a phe book was. All of this happens before you Apple: to the website you requested. DNS lookup occurs every time you click a link to a site, not just when you type a URL in your browser. There are some problems with DNS:
- It's slow. Often, your ISP treats your DNS as it processes the router that it provides you with – like an afterthought.
- This is completely n-private. Your ISP knows all the sites you visit.
- This is spoofable. A questiable DNS service can redirect you to fraudulent sites. A fake banking site, for example
- It can be used for censorship. A country can take ctrol of the DNS and use it to block certain sites.
