AMSTERDAM, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Freenom launches Freenom World, an anonymous open DNS resolver that is available at nearby locations throughout the world, making it one of the fastest DNS resolvers available. Each time a website is visited or an email is sent, devices perform DNS lookups. If these devices or networks are set to use Freenom World, at IP address 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124, then these lookups are done faster, anonymous and more secure.
"We want to provide the best online experience for all internet users," says Joost Zuurbier, CEO at Freenom. "We started Freenom by providing domain names at no cost. Due to its success combined with our advanced technology, we are able to provide fast and safe DNS resolver services. Just configure your DNS to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 and you are done. No login, username or signup is required." Freenom operates a global AnyCast DNS network, with servers located throughout the world. The AnyCast technology allows Freenom to use the same IP addresses (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11) on all these different locations. Unlike other DNS providers, like large advertising networks, Freenom does not store any IP addresses in its log files. Log files are kept for statistical reasons only and exclude any IP address information. "Normally your internet service provider or a large advertising network is providing your DNS resolving service," says Maurice van der Meer, CTO at Freenom. "These resolvers may redirect your request to a search page or advertising page. At Freenom, we are committed to preserve the integrity of the DNS protocol. Freenom World's DNS resolvers will never forward any request for a non-existing domain to an advertising page." Internet service providers or large advertising networks may use your DNS requests to track your viewing habits, insert targeted ads or even throttle your connection. By using Freenom World you are ensured that none of your IP information is stored and your website visits are not used to optimize ads.
