Here is a list of some popular DNS servers that are available for anyone to use. If your internet
service provider or government are using local DNS servers to restrict your internet access, change
servers! Your computer can be configured to use any desired DNS server, so use ones that are fast
and unrestricted. OpenNIC maintains a list of public tier 2 DNS servers
which is updated daily. After configuring your computer to use one of the listed DNS servers,
do a reboot or clear your DNS cache (removes data from the previously used servers).
Open and Unrestricted DNS Server List:
- Level 3 Communications (Broomfield, CO, US)
- Verizon (Reston, VA, US)
- GTE (Irving, TX, US)
- One Connect IP (Albuquerque, NM, US)
- OpenDNS (San Francisco, CA, US)
- VRx Network Services (New York, NY, US)
- SpeakEasy (Seattle, WA, US)
- Sprintlink (Overland Park, KS, US)
- Cisco (San Jose, CA, US)
- 2001:470:1f10:c6::2 (us)
With so many options for DNS look-up services, one could implement a DNS server
rotation or swapping scheme to defeat attempts to restrict internet access. What
works best is encrypted DNS (DNS over TLS or DNS over HTTPS). Along
with VPN tunnels, open and free DNS servers ensure that any person, anywhere, can
freely communicate and access the communications of others on the internet.
