5 List of alternative DNS servers

This site provides guidelines for using alternative DNS servers in countries implementing domain name based censoring systems. A DNS server is like a phone book that helps your computer find the address of a website you are trying to visit. The censorship system implemented by major providers in Germany and other countries just does not give you a full phone book. Circumventing the censorship is as easy as using another phone book.

Please follow the instructions below to configure your computer with an alternative DNS server address below and to enjoy unfiltered access to the internet. The list will also give you an idea of the large number of organizations providing services that ensure your free access to information on the internet as well as ISPs that have chosen not to adopt the censorship system. We are all fighting for a common cause, please consider to contribute to them!

If you are running an unfiltered DNS server, please add it to the list.

    Forgive me if I am instinctively more distrustful of an OpenDNS.com rather than I am of an OpenNIC.org!

    Call me an incurable romantic, given a choice between love and money, I still opt for love.
