What DNS do you use ?

I'm using Next DNS with custom block lists, wondering if it's the way to go or just use a unfiltered one. What do you guys use

    adguardhome using opendns as upstream dns server.

    ISP DNS, Cloudflare Security DNS, OpenDNS.

    I dont know why, if I use nextdns as upstream on adguardhome, some sites will slow or even fail to load (icloud web, steam login page, shopee, sluggish tiktok videos, etc). problem still persist with dns cache and blocklist disabled. :s

    I just add all of the IPs and hostnames directly to my /etc/host file.


  • ControlD with Adguard home

    It's fully customizable, also unblocks region restrictions

    Do you mean DNS hosting or DNS resolver? a) Cloudflare b) and plus self-hosted Adguard Home.

    On mobile Adguard DNS via AdGuard App.

    On PC/Laptop just GoogleDNS/CF/ISP. For ads I have uBlock/Adguard browser extension.

  • Carlin0Carlin0 Member

    Cloudflare - Google

    Control D
    The best DNS service so far (I've used Next DNS, and Adguard DNS ). It has something others don't, and it can Bypass geo-blocks.

  • seilentseilent Member

    ControlD, I like the redirect feature.

    The defaults are / In-house and provider DNS servers for more complex and secure setups.

    Using cloudns

  • cochoncochon Member

    PiHole style blocklists hand balled to a database for PowerDNS via script, way less memory and CPU than PiHole itself. PDNS recursor to field internal domains then Cloudflare and Quad9 behind that for public.

    Cloudflare or Google. Firstly I ping which one is better than i use that.
