DNS Server 22.214.171.124
Google’s free DNS server at the address 126.96.36.199 is now well known. The new service under 188.8.131.52, on the other hand, is provided by the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA), originally founded by the London Police and IBM. And the big technology company is also responsible for the security features of the service.

As communicated by the GCA, the new service synchronizes with the normal DNS, but the entries in the database are filtered. The reference list is the IBM X Force service. It lists around 40 billion websites that have been classified as dangerous, either because they are trying to trick their visitors into malware or because they belong to the phishing segment.

The GCA emphasized that there should be no logging of specific DNS queries. The financing of the free service is therefore not done by evaluating user data and marketing the findings. This is often the case with other DNS services where the server is not provided by the provider and funded through the normal connection fees.
