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

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/04

Abstract from this morning’s Twitter feed:

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

So what’s left?

  • Cloudflare: alternative to
  • Google: with secondary at

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 (;

Or you could go the 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 the fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service / [WayBack] — the Internet’s Fastest, Privacy-First DNS Resolver
