Windows 10 with DNS-over-HTTPS support. Finally!

Microsoft was released today a new version of Windows 10 στο κανάλι Windows Insider . Το νέο build φέρνει αρκετές βελτιώσεις αλλά και ρυθμίσεις για κρυπτογραφημένες DNS.

The DNS-over-HTTPS is a relatively new security feature that aims to protect DNS traffic from third parties. Encrypts DNS traffic using the HTTPS protocol. For those who do not know DNS is used to "translate" domain names (, to numeric IP addresses.

Unencrypted DNS traffic allows the network provider, e.g. the ISP and other third parties who have access to the same network, to control which pages you visit. In addition it is possible for ISPs to change requests, e.g. blocking them or redirecting them (as we saw with its ban Subs4free).

Η Microsoft ανακοίνωσε πριν από λίγο καιρό ότι το λειτουργικό σύστημα των Windows θα υποστηρίζει κρυπτογραφημένους DNS. Οι προγραμματιστές προγραμμάτων (Mozilla ή Google) have added functionality support to their programs.

The new version of Windows 10, however, brings support for DNS-over-HTTPS in the Operating System Settings for Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections.

For ethernet:

Follow the path Settings - Network & Internet - Status.
Click Properties.
Select Edit IP or Edit DNS Server (Edit IP assignment or Edit DNS server assignment).

For Wi-Fi:

Follow the path Settings - Network & Internet - Wi-Fi.
Click Properties.
Select Edit IP or Edit DNS Server (Edit IP assignment or Edit DNS server assignment).

The current version only recognizes some DNS-over-HTTPS providers by default, namely Cloudflare, Google, and Quad9.

Select the DNS you want from the following table:

Server Owner Server IP addresses

2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1111

2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1001


2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8888

2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8844


2620: fe :: fe

2620: fe :: fe: 9

Enter or paste an IP address into the page, then select one of the available DNS encryption options.

The options are:

No encryption.
Encrypted only (DNS-over-HTTPS).
Priority encryption, allowed and unencrypted connection.

Confirm your choice and check if it works by looking at the DNS servers in the network properties. They must show (encrypted).

Η Microsoft αναφέρει ότι οι διαχειριστές των Windows 10 μπορούν επίσης να δοκιμάσουν προσαρμοσμένους διακομιστές DNS-over-HTTPS., αλλά αυτό απαί τη χρήση της παρακάτω εντολής netsh: The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
