Speed up your internet access by changing DNS to 1.1.1.1

Google DNS is 8.8.8.8 is fast, Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 is even faster, try it and experience it yourself.

 

Privacy First: Guaranteed.

We will never sell your data or use it to target ads. Period.

We will never log your IP address (the way other companies identify you). And we’re not just saying that. We’ve retained KPMG to audit our systems annually to ensure that we’re doing what we say.

Frankly, we don’t want to know what you do on the Internet—it’s none of our business—and we’ve taken the technical steps to ensure we can’t.

Faster than anything else.

28% faster, in fact.

We’ve built 1.1.1.1 to be the Internet’s fastest DNS directory. Don’t take our word for it. The independent DNS monitor DNSPerf ranks 1.1.1.1 the fastest DNS service in the world.

Since nearly everything you do on the Internet starts with a DNS request, choosing the fastest DNS directory across all your devices will accelerate almost everything you do online.

Who’s behind this?

1.1.1.1 is a partnership between Cloudflare and APNIC.

Cloudflare runs one of the world’s largest, fastest networks. APNIC is a non-profit organization managing IP address allocation for the Asia Pacific and Oceania regions.

Cloudflare had the network. APNIC had the IP address (1.1.1.1). Both of us were motivated by a mission to help build a better Internet. You can read more about each organization’s motivations on our respective posts: Cloudflare Blog / APNIC Blog.
