    BHW - of course.

    Want your BHW that little bit faster and more secure 1111 is where you need to be.

    Most of you will know what DNS is. Some of you will even play in that space. If you want your access to BHW to be that little bit faster and more private consider updating your DNS settings to 1.1.1.1 - you won't regret it. Not just good for BHW access - great for the entire internet eco-system. Check out the latest result of the JV between cloudflare and APNIC here - https://1.1.1.1/

    Yep I thought it was an April fools to - turns out it was all in the plan.! o_O

    Jumped on this the other day, have had a slightly noticeable improvement across the board. The privacy bit is nice as well.

    No info on the company behind it? I mean I know that our privacy is compromised either way, but I would rather have big daddy Google watch me sleep, instead of some shady 50 year old guy in his basement, if you know what I mean :D

    Pretty cool. Did you do all this by hand/excel or is there software for this?

    It's a shell script - https://github.com/cleanbrowsing/dnsperftest

    The only thing I changed was adding BHW as a test domain.

    Who’s behind this?
    1.1.1.1 is a partnership between Cloudflare and APNIC.

    Cloudflare runs one of the world’s largest, fastest networks. APNIC is a non-profit organization managing IP address allocation for the Asia Pacific and Oceania regions.

    Cloudflare had the network. APNIC had the IP address (1.1.1.1). Both of us were motivated by a mission to help build a better Internet. You can read more about each organization’s motivations on our respective posts: Cloudflare Blog / APNIC Blog.

    PS. Everyone switching to this will have BIG effects on SEO.

    Google uses the DNS data to track site popularity.

    I recommend EVERYONE switch.
     
  13. Thanks for this tip.

    And I will have a look and see how I could implement DoH. Maybe handy for some forms of botting.

    Wow - At my farm we have to use 3/4g internet as the landlines are awful. We average about 10mb, using this seems to have peaked it to 13mb and websites are a lot quicker. Gold

    Could you elaborate on this if you have some spare time? Sounds interesting.

    INFORMATION : To change DNS settings on Windows 10,
    open Settings app > go to Network & Internet and click Change adapter options.

    [​IMG]

    Right-click on the network adapter (Wired or Wireless) you are connected to, then click Properties.

    Double-click the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP 4) to open its Properties dialog window. Then click Use the following DNS server addresses and enter 1.1.1.1 as the Preferred DNS server and 1.0.0.1 as the Alternate DNS Server.

    DEFINITELY going to give this a go. Always love supporting cool new tech ventures.

    Just keep in mind that if you need Local DNS resolution to work - if you have network sharing for example - then you’ll still want your router or dns server’s ip as primary here.

    For me I’ll be setting the 1.1.1.1 dns server on my internet router :)

    If you query Google DNS for www.blackhatworld.com 1 million times an hour from tons of IPs, it records that activity. If that activity matches activity from their Chrome and javascrypt spyware, then it's considered legit and their AI is trained to consider that a popular site.

    Google runs on AI now. You can train it
