How do I prevent DNS leaks?

Use our DNS leak test to find out if your DNS is leaking: https://vpn.ht/dns-leak-test
 
You can prevent DNS leaks by setting static DNS servers on your network connection.
You can use one of the following open DNS services or contact support to get the ip addresses of our own DNS servers.
Google Public DNS
  • Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
  • Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
Open DNS
  • Preferred DNS server: 208.67.222.222
  • Alternate DNS server: 208.67.222.220
Comodo Secure DNS
  • Preferred DNS server: 8.26.56.26
  • Alternate DNS server: 8.20.247.20

Linux

In most modern Linux distributions, DNS settings are configured through Network Manager.
Example: Changing DNS server settings on Ubuntu
  1. Click System > Preferences > Network Connections.
  2. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example:
    • To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, select the Wired tab, then select your network interface in the list. It is usually called eth0.
    • To change the settings for a wireless connection, select the Wireless tab, then select the appropriate wireless network.
  3. Click Edit, and in the window that appears, select the IPv4 Settings or IPv6 Settings tab.
  4. If the selected method is Automatic (DHCP), open the dropdown and select Automatic (DHCP) addresses only instead. If the method is set to something else, do not change it.
  5. In the DNS servers field, enter the ip addresses above.
  6. Click Apply to save the change. If you are prompted for a password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  7. Test that your setup is working correctly; see Test your new settings below.
  8. Repeat the procedure for additional network connections you want to change.
If your distribution doesn't use Network Manager, your DNS settings are specified in /etc/resolv.conf.
