Since nearly everything you do on your computer is related to the internet, and everything on the internet starts with a DNS request, choosing the fastest DNS directory will accelerate almost everything you do online.
How to setup
I’d advise you to connect to your router via browser, and then add these values into DNS server settings :
- For IPv4: 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124
- For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001
This way- if you update router settings, you won’t have to go over all devices and computers in your local network and change DNS’s settings one by one.
To setup this on windows 10 , go to your Control Panel, then in Network and Sharing Centre. Click View Network status and tasks. Then from the left – Change Adapter Settings. You might have several network connections installed on your PC, choose the one you’re using. Right click on your connection, then click on Properties.

Within this window, you are searching for Internet Protocol Version 4 and Internet Protocol Version 6. Maybe your IPv4 settings might wary from screenshots bellow, but don’t let that frighten you. You only need to update Preffered DNS server & Alternate DNS server fields.

Local connection Ipv6 settings
After you’ve changed both IPv4 & IPv6 DNS settings, click „Validate settings upon exit“ to verify that everything is set to go. Press OK to close this window and that’s it – you have faster internet!

Care of your Internet Privacy
Of course, if you use this DNS resolver, or any other – your browsing information will be forwarded through it and that means that it is going to be logged somewhere. Cloudfare publicly promised that their logs are being daily deleted which isn’t the case with Google’s resolver or any other publicly available DNS resolver. This means they DON’T care NOR will monitor your browsing history.That promise is being verified by KPMG. It’s quite impressive.
