A DNS, or Domain Name System, translates human-readable domain names (e.g. www.example.com) into IP addresses that computers can understand (e.g. 192.0.2.1). When you type a domain name into your browser, your computer will first contact a DNS server to resolve the address before connecting to the website’s server itself.
Most ISPs run their own DNS servers, which means that they can control what domains are resolving to which IP addresses. This allows them to block certain websites by redirecting them to non-existent IP addresses or by displaying an error message instead of the website’s content.
However, if you use a public DNS server instead of your ISP’s server, you can circumvent these restrictions since the ISP will no longer be able to control what domains are resolving to which IP addresses. This can be useful if you’re trying to access a website that’s been censored by your government or workplace, or if you want to watch region-locked video content from another country.
To use a public DNS server, simply change your computer’s primary and/or secondary DNS settings to point to one of the many well-known public servers (e..google Public DNS at 88..4..4). Once done, all of your web traffic will go through the public DNS server instead of your ISP’s server – meaning that they’ll no longer be able to block or censor any website that you try to access
If you’re looking to unblock geo-restricted websites and stream video content from abroad, you can use either a Smart DNS service or a VPN. However, only a VPN will hide your IP address and encrypt your web traffic. Custom DNS doesn’t spoof your location or encrypt your data transfers, but it can improve your internet speeds and security.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure way of connecting to a private network over the internet. A VPN can be used to access remote resources, securely connect to public networks, or browse the internet anonymously.
A Raspberry Pi can be used as a VPN server with the help of some software. In this article, we’ll show you how to set up a VPN on your Raspberry Pi and how to use it.
Why Use a VPN?
There are many reasons why you might want to use a VPN. A few common ones include:
– To securely access your home network while you’re away from home. This is especially useful if you want to remotely access files on your home computer or NAS.
– To securely connect to public Wi-Fi networks. When using public Wi-Fi, all of your traffic is typically unencrypted and vulnerable to eavesdropping. By connecting to a VPN, all of your traffic will be encrypted and much more secured.
– To browse the internet anonymously. When connected to a VPN, your IP address will be hidden and replaced with the IP address of the VPN server. This makes it much harder for anyone track your online activity or identify you personally.
How Does It Work?
1) Install Raspbian on your Raspberry Pi (we recommend using NOOBS).
2) Connecting Your Router and Configure port forwarding correctly . The details depend on which router you have , but in general terms… Log into finish this later
