From the #AllesIstKaput department: DNS 1.1.1.1 is unusable for many; 9.9.9.9 has government affiliation

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/04

Abstract from this morning’s Twitter feed:

  • 1.1.1.1 DNS is broken in many areas (because of for instance AT&T, Vodafone, Cisco screwing up and 1.1.1.1 historically being marked for research purposes)
  • 9.9.9.9 DNS has government affiliation

So what’s left?

  • Cloudflare: 1.0.0.1 alternative to 1.1.1.1
  • Google: 8.8.8.8 with secondary at 8.8.4.4

There are a more interesting IPv4 addresses untaken for DNS, but I’m not sure they are likable enough:

And of course there is the reserved 0.0.0.0 (;

Or you could go the 10.10.10.10 way with DNSSEC (and some public ones mentioned in [WayBack] DNS Server mit Persönlichkeitschutz / Blog / Privat – Lutz Donnerhacke):

Zunächst gibt es eine massive Beschränkung von leicht merkbaren IP-Adressen. Der IPv4 Adressraum läßt nur 220 Adressen der Form x.x.x.x zu.

So maybe CloudFlare was an April 1st joke after all: [WayBack] Announcing 1.1.1.1: the fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service / [WayBack] 1.1.1.1 — the Internet’s Fastest, Privacy-First DNS Resolver
