easyDNS launches DNSResolvers.com: no frills, pure DNS lookups – fully patched

Some of our members have expressed reservations around using any DNS resolver that “alters” the traffic in any way, including typos and non-existent domains. Which is good news for us, because we’ve done this so fast we haven’t had time to build anything like that even if we wanted to. What we did want to do is provide a couple of DNS resolvers for use by our members (or anybody else) who just want to know they’re using a system run by people who are actively following this situation and are proactively keeping their own resolvers and caching nameservers as secure as the protocol allows.

With this in mind we’ve turned up DNSresolvers.com today. No website, no user interface, at the moment it’s just a couple of resolvers with the latest security patches in place and that will continue to do so, open to use by anybody who wants. We have no idea where this will go, and it’s not really an official easyDNS “service” per se. But we wanted to do something to give our members options.

If you want to use DNSresolvers.com, the details are as follows:


cache1.dnsresolvers.com -> 205.210.42.205
cache2.dnsresolvers.com -> 64.68.200.200
