Hello Everyone, i’m KDT and today we are gonna be seeing about a awesome tool which helps us in the same exact way as a VPN does, But it is not a VPN. It is none other than Cloudfare 184.108.40.206. Lets see about this tool in detail. In order to completely understand this, we need to know the basics of DNS(Domain Name System).
WHAT IS DNS?
The Domain Name System (DNS) is the phone directory of the Internet. Basically, Humans access information online through domain names, like kdttechy.com or youtube.com. Web browsers interact through IP addresses and DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.
Each device connected to the Internet has a unique IP address which other machines use to find the device. For Example, if i want to go to Google, i would type this google.com. This then gets converted as a IP addresses such as 220.127.116.11. This is how DNS works.
WHAT IS 18.104.22.168 AND HOW IT WORKS
22.214.171.124 is a public DNS resolver operated by Cloudflare that offers a fast and private way to browse the Internet. Unlike others, 126.96.36.199 does not sell user data to advertisers. It has also been measured to be the fastest DNS resolver available.
Now there would be question in mind, what are DNS resolvers. They are nothing but a server that manages the doman to ip translation, in which an IP address is matched to domain name and sent back to the computer that requested it. They are also known as Recursive resolvers.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
So, lets discuss about the difference between this and a VPN. VPNs generally connect us to a virtual tunnel resulting in changing our IP address as the name stands Virtual Private Network. On the other hand, what 188.8.131.52 does is that, it changes our DNS config to 184.108.40.206 and this results the same. But there are some main factors of difference. Let’s discuss it.
- While using a VPN, your connections are encrypted but it’s not the case in 220.127.116.11. It does not encrypt your data.
- Also there are major speed differences while using 18.104.22.168, it’s much faster compared to a VPN as VPNs change our IP and connect us to a virtual server. But 22.214.171.124 only changes our DNS config.
Android and IOS devices have most straight forward installation procedures. You just have to download the 126.96.36.199 app from the respective stores and install them.
I conclude by saying that, if you cannot afford a VPN and security is not your concern and only wish to have speed, you can definitely go for 188.8.131.52 as it is also completely free. But, if you wish for a good security and speed too, you should stick with the VPN.
