VPN vs. DNS – What do I choose?

Streaming Devices

So you’re ready to cut the cord and you’ve heard that you can access international streaming websites with VPN and Smart DNS services. Until recently, these types of services were a well-kept secret – only used by tech savvy people who can actually tell you what a computer’s CPU is. Those of us who have to call IT for a printer jam would never have dreamed of accessing US Netflix or BBC iPlayer. Not anymore! As streaming services become more widely available, even the most technologically clueless (including myself) are taking the plunge.

But what to choose? Here are the key differences between VPNs and Smart DNS, so you can choose the service that is right for you.

How does VPN and DNS technologies work?

How VPN works

A VPN is a remote network of computers linked together over the internet. It allows for a secure browsing experience because it encrypts all of your data as it goes through a private network. This means websites won’t be able to see your IP address and you can access all of their content regardless if it is geoblocked.

Just think of VPN as an invisibility cloak. A VPN will let you wander the Internet like Harry Potter wandered Hogwarts at night.

How Smart DNS works

Every computer is assigned a local IP address. When you visit a website, it identifies where you are based on your IP address. Certain websites – particular video streaming websites, block IP addresses outside its geographic region. Smart DNS technologies bypass geo-blocks by providing you with a local IP address when accessing these websites.

You can think of Smart DNS as cybertravel. One minute your computer is connecting to the Internet from the UK. The next minute, you’re virtually connecting from the US.

What do I get with VPN vs. DNS?

While VPN and DNS both help you access geoblocked content, they each have their own benefits.

 VPNDNS
WebsitesAll websitesSupported geoblocked websites
SpeedSlows down Internet speedsNo impact or minimal impact on Internet speeds
Device CompatibilityComputersAll major streaming devices
PrivacyProtects privacyDoes not protect privacy
LoginLogin each time you use itLogin whenever you want to change regions

 

OK. So what do I choose?

Choose Smart DNS if you…

Choose a Smart DNS service if you simply want to unlock international websites. It is the best for video streaming because it is faster and works on multiple devices.

Choose VPN if you…

Choose a VPN service if you are concerned about Internet privacy. VPN is also your best bet if you travel frequently since many hotels and wifi hot spots block DNS services.

 

UnoTelly offers both DNS and VPN services. Sign up for a free 8 day UnoTelly DNS trial now.

How to Remove Unsecure DNS Codes from your Devices

hacker-computer-123-resized-6003

With the rising popularity of Netflix, so is the well-known practice of using DNS servers to get around geo-blocks. Because of this, many new DNS Servers are being released onto the the internet with the promise of giving you access to US Netflix outside of the US for free with your Netflix account. These DNS Servers, often referred to as ‘DNS Codes,’ are usually released in forums and social media sites without a company name or a trusted source to allow you to access US-only titles for free. Using such untrusted “DNS Codes” might pose danger to your network security.

For those of you that don’t know, DNS Servers translate a domain name such as www.netflix.com into it’s equivalent IP address so your device knows where the site is located. Practically every website you go to on the internet or any service you use relies on the DNS servers setup on your computer to tell it where to go. DNS servers are often overlooked by most people, but they play such a crucial part in the security of your network that you should never, ever, use any unknown DNS servers on your devices.

Using an unknown or untrusted DNS server can not only allow someone to monitor your DNS lookup traffic, but the server can be used to redirect you to unsecure or fake sites posing as legitimate websites to steal your information. This is known as Phishing. The same servers can be used to inject different content into your traffic such as ads, effectively causing a program to break, or in this case replace Netflix images with their own ads.

Now, if you have been seeing weird behaviour such as your Netflix images being replaced by ads or you’re being redirected to suspicious sites automatically, the first thing to do is remove the DNS servers from your devices.

You can find instructions to remove unknown DNS servers and reset them to ISP default settings in the videos below: below for many popular devices.

It is imperative for your safety and security online to use DNS servers from trusted sources rather than ones posted online, especially when they promise you free access. Like Milton Friedman said, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Check out our previous article about the risks of using free services here.

Why Isn’t UnoTelly free?

If someone walks up to you on the street and offers you a free sandwich, would you be skeptical about it? I would. However, our attitude toward “free” in the digital world is different where we would not only frown at “free” but demand it.

 

There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

– Milton Friedman

 

Don’t get me wrong, we at Unotelly love free things and use many great open-source systems to power our services. However, “free” often comes with a catch. Let it be Google or Facebook, you can bet the price tag of “free” is your personal information.

The real price of ‘Free’

 

Recently, users of a “free” browser plugin called Hola learned the true price of “free”: their personal internet connection.

 

As reported by The Verge, Hola has been accused of piggy-backing users’ internet connection and reselling it as a commercial VPN service via their Luminati brand. Unfortunately, this crowd-sourced internet was used by hackers to launch an attack against a website called 8chan.

 

In layman’s terms, when you use the Hola plugin, you allow Hola to share your internet connection with other Hola users and give consent to Hola to sell your internet connection to anyone via the Luminati brand. Think of Hola as crowdsourcing internet connections and then reselling it.

 

What is the implication of sharing your internet connection with just anyone?

 

First, you might reveal sensitive information to unauthorized parties.

Your internet connection will transmit sensitive and personal information – banking details, private photos, business trade secrets, etc. Would you want to invite another third party who will resell the access to your internet connection to just about anyone? Even Google and Facebook don’t have the same level of access to your internet connection as Hola.

 

Second, your internet connection could be linked to illegal activities.

When you use the Hola plugin, you give consent to Hola to resell your internet connection to others. In other words, anyone could pay a fee to Luminati and use your internet as the middleman to perform various activities. Your internet includes a unique IP address to identify where and who you are. When you let someone else “borrow” your internet connection, and this person uses your internet connection for illegal activities, your unique IP address will be linked to those activities. Potentially, your IP address could become part of an active police investigation. The chances of police knocking on your door is extremely low, but why risk the headache?

 

Finally, you might have to pay for additional internet data usage to your ISP when sharing your internet connection with Hola.

Sharing your internet connection with others will consume your bandwidth, and if you have a bandwidth cap on your connection, you are actually paying an indirect cost to use the Hola service – you don’t pay Hola but you pay your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for using additional bandwidth.
