Public DNS Providers

Public DNS Providers

For every provider I’ve extracted IPv4 addresses for Preferred and Alternate servers and Hostname for TLS authentication (DNS-over-TLS aka DNS-Over-QUIC). By default, TLS Port is 853. This hostname is useful for setting Android “Private DNS” option.

In the end, I found an incredibly high-quality source of information about all Known DNS Providers, maintained by AdGuard DNS, but it is open-source on their GitHub repository: If I had found this earlier, I wouldn’t have even written this document.
