Cloudflare DNS Server
An agreement with APNIC, one of five regional Internet registry, enabled CloudFlare to use address 1001 as the second IPv4 address for its DNS service, with a separate IPv4 range for searches. As the CloudFlares network expanded its capacity to handle traffic, an agreement was reached that allowed its laboratory to analyze traffic in the public IP address ranges 1110 and 111255 assigned to it. In return, Cloudflare was able to use 1111 for its DNS resolver project.
Your ISP gives access to the domain name system (DNS) server, so you can enter a URL anywhere in your browser and it will locate the relevant IP address. If you are using a router on your office network, the DNS settings you are logging in to can be found in the settings of your DNS server.
However, if you need to use a version 6 IP address, you must enter it on the IPv6 DNS settings page of your router.
Next, configure your router so that the LAN IP address of your docker host uses your docker host as the primary DNS address. Enter the IP address of your Docker host for your preferred DNS server (in my case 192.168.1.2.10) or you can set the CloudFlare DNS server address to 1111 as an alternative DNS server if you want to leave it blank and request the domain name in plain text. Now that we have it, Cloudflare connects Google Public DNS (with 8888) and Quad9 DNS (with 9999) to implement 1111, a more memorable IP address for accessing our new DNS service.
If the containers are on the same Docker network, you can set DNS on the LAN IP address of the DNS container. Your ISP may have assigned you a DNS server when you first connected to the Internet, but it may not be the best DNS (Domain Name System) server of choice. If a server returns an IP address that is not yours, you might want to try setting up your system to use a working DNS server to see if it makes a difference.
Resolve is an essential part of the Internet, but DNS servers that are provided by Internet service providers can be slow and unreliable. A slow DNS (Domain Name System) server may cause delayed web pages to load slower and if your server fails, you may not be able to access a page. Internet service providers and the Wi-Fi networks you connect to use DNS servers to determine which websites to visit, which can pose privacy issues.
CloudFlare’s 11.11.1 DNS service was never designed with privacy and security in mind and does not add verification of the information that the service returns when it queries unencrypted traffic, allowing anyone to monitor your network connection and see what you are looking for and visiting. Domains that use a particular service, such as content delivery network provider (CDN) domains, are also affected by their DNS choice.
If you are in a shared network office, you can ask the network administrator to scan the network for misconfigured or infected devices. At CloudFlare, Constellix offers a traffic management service that balances load and distributes network traffic across multiple servers to avoid overloading a single server. It also checks the health of new resources before sending them traffic.
Its warp function saves your data on the same network as you and your ISP, but does not hide your public IP address. To access the CloudFlares DNS service, you must access the network properties in your browser. CloudFlare says its warp feature is free with its 11.11.1 service.
Its warp function provides a more secure connection between CloudFlare's nearest server and the Internet than a traditional VPN. Communication between your browser and the CloudFlare DNS service is unencrypted and less visible to your ISP than a connection to Google's DNS server or Cisco OpenDNS. Both services hide your DNS requests and protect important information from your ISP.
CloudFlare operates the most authoritative DNS resolver network for over 20 million Internet properties. CloudFlare claims that DNSPerf tests show CloudFlare's DNS server response times are faster than those of the most commonly used DNS services such as Google or OpenDNS. See our CloudFlared Market Report to see how Cloudflare's growth rate compares to other DNS server providers.
There are many DNS servers in the world, but the one your browser uses is determined by your Internet service provider. Verify that you are using CloudFlare's DNS settings for the CloudFlare Free DNS Resolver IP Address, an IP address created as a consumer DNS service for computers and routers by Cloudflare. The service operates as a recursive name server with a publicly used IP address list.
A VPN service allows your computer to continue to use its default DNS service, but allows outsiders to view unencrypted requests for web server addresses. As browsers get more secure DNS functionality, the most important DNS services can better protect your privacy, but not CloudFlare.
CloudFlare is a web infrastructure company that provides content delivery networks (CDN), distributed DDoS (DDoS) services, critical DNS services and consumer DNS resolver services. Today (April Fools Day) they launch their Consumer DNS service which promises to speed up your internet connection and help keep it private. Although they have undertaken never to use DNS to browse data or display advertisements, they have also undertaken never to record your IP address and to delete DNS logs within 24 hours.
CloudFlare is a provider of various content delivery network services. They provide DDoS protection through various services that help maintain the integrity of websites and customer performance while safeguarding their network of connected servers. With the CloudFlare Content Delivery Network (CDN), theyare an old hand in high-speed business Internet.
