Faster Internet for FREE in 30 seconds – No… Seriously



last time I said what if I told you that you can double triple or even quadruple your internet speed with one easy trick the answer was to just spend more money on extra internet connections so I can understand your hesitation about clicking this video thank you for giving me another chance because guess what this new tip that works on PC Mac Linux and even your phone will make your internet anywhere from a little bit to a metric but ton faster in less than a minute for free there's a new DNS in town baby private Internet access is the VPN service that encrypts all of your internet traffic and use a safe protected IP it's got tons of other useful features and you can check it out at the link below so today's tip is actually nothing new using a faster or more reliable DNS service than the one that your good-for-nothing ISP assigns to you is something people have been doing for years the new development is that CloudFlare best known for their anti DDoS protection service has released a competitor to major public dns providers like Google and Open DNS they're calling it the Internet's fastest privacy first consumer DNS service which is kind of a lot of qualifiers but according to third-party DNS analytics site DNS perf 1.1 1.1 is either the fastest or nearly the fastest DNS across all regions so let's show you guys how to switch to it CloudFlare actually has step-by-step instructions for all of your devices right on their website we're gonna have that linked below but for your convenience we've also included screen capture for the most popular platforms they're all basically a variation of digging into your network settings and reconfiguring your DNS from auto to 1.1.11 with 100.1 as a backup advanced users with many devices in their homes may want to configure their router to manually use cloud flares DNS as well which will save them the hassle of doing this rigmarole on each device individually and that was it but we wouldn't blame you guys for not wanting to switch to some newfangled dearness resolver before we've explained what that is and proven that it actually matters which is why this video is not over yet so then what does a DNS do well humans remember and use domain names like google.com or Linus tech tips dot-com but these pages actually live at an IP address like 104 dot two seven 140 . 189 or with ipv6 it's even harder to remember meaning that every time you type in a domain name the translation to that pages IP address has to be looked up but this is not as simple as flipping through a virtual rolodex these records are decentralized and stored on the servers of multiple different registrar's all over the world which is why you need a service to look up correct IP addresses after you press ENTER and since you can't start loading a page until you know where it is using a slow overloaded or unreliable DNS server can noticeably slow down virtually everything that you do online so to find out how much faster cloud flairs option is we use gr C's free DNS benchmarking tool and the results are a little mixed but also very promising so the latency on retrieving cached pages things that we have already searched for was actually lower with our local DNS servers which makes sense because they are physically closer to us but when it came to uncashed Names in.com lookups CloudFlare servers came out ahead especially when our primary DNS name server failed since our secondary name server turned out to be dead which slows things down and our tertiary and quaternary name servers are Google's Public DNS which aren't as fast but putting the numbers aside 1.1 dot you know let's just call it 1 dot it felt faster new tabs opened instantaneously and videos on YouTube loaded more snappily than we were used to though it should be noted that this trick won't affect the video quality that you can playback at that still depends on the bandwidth that your connection is rated for so then häôs CloudFlare doing this well many factors affect the speed of a DNS query but the biggest one is whether the server can retrieve the answer from a cache if the domain IP address pair is already stored in your browser operating system or DNS server then your dns resolver doesn't have to balance between multiple routes and stars around the world in order to solve the query so with one dot CloudFlare pre-fills they're distributed cash out of bandwidth popular addresses that you are likely to query and they're also working to build out their network with the eventual goal of having every user within 10 milliseconds of at least one of their locations in March alone they enabled 31 new data centers all over the world and they use fancy query techniques like aggressive negative caching to decrease the load on their system so ok good for them but what if one dot isn't faster than what you're already using is there any point switching to it believe it or not yes because there are privacy advantages as well even if you're visiting an HTTPS website one that supports encrypted data transfer the fact that you searched for that site in the first place is still known by your DNS resolver this means that by default your ISP your mobile network provider and every Wi-Fi network you've ever connected to have a comprehensive list of every site you visited while you're using them yeah while one dot does actually need to log your IP address to prevent abuse and to debug issues CloudFlare has committed with third-party auditing firm KPMG on retainer to wiping all of their logs within 24 hours and never writing your IP address to a disk so they actually won't know who searched for what sites they use query minimization to ensure that they only revealed the specific data necessary to complete the query and they support up and coming privacy standards like DNS / TLS and DNS over HTTPS and while you might think that privacy isn't that important consider that in 2014 the government of Turkey ordered the country's ISPs to censor Twitter by blocking DNS requests after a government corruption scandal leaked online so in response protesters actually spray-painted the IP of Google's DNS resolver all over Istanbul to help their fellow Turks get back online so this video sorry it was kind of heavy but thank you for making this far ants using London helps you browse faster which is great but also makes the internet more secure and open and we think that particular aspect is priority number one dot one dot one more one's looking to build a gaming PC and you need some sick gaming gear to go with it while we're teaming up with ROS will to give away three gaming bundles to three lucky winners each one will contain their Cullinan MX RGB case with three tempered glass panels room for expansion and more Behr GX 50 headset with clear sound at an affordable price not that you'll care you are of course getting it for free it's got leather and ear cups and an RGB lit ring and their fusion c40 gaming keyboard which features RGB LED backlighting and you get a 4000 dpi optical sensor mouse that apparently comes with that because it's a combo haha the more you know learn more and enter through our link in the video description so thanks for watching guys if this video suck do you know what to do but if it was awesome can subscribe hit that like button or check out the link to where to buy the stuff we featured which is nothing I don't know let's put like a network card down there so who cares anyway also linked in the description is our merch store which has cool shirts

    Linus would love if you looked at my routers specs and my verizon fios setup because i still cant figure out why im getting such huge latency with the setup im running. Ppl that have a fios network would surely appreciate a tutorial on how you would optimise the fios network. I try to run everything from ont to my oersonal router first but still issues. Maybe we can work a solution out for the gaming community or you could make fun of this problem

    You advertise a vpn. Mabey you could also inform viewers of the real dangers of vpn and the true nature of vpns.
