Cloudflare launches 1.1.1.1 DNS service that will speed up your internet | The Verge

Cloudflare has worked with APNIC to offer its DNS service through 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1. Lots of people have used 1.1.1.1 as a dummy address, and APNIC have tried in the past to analyze the flood of traffic to the IP address and been overwhelmed. “We talked to the APNIC team about how we wanted to create a privacy-first, extremely fast DNS system,” explains Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince. “We offered Cloudflare’s network to receive and study the garbage traffic in exchange for being able to offer a DNS resolver on the memorable IPs. And, with that, 1.1.1.1 was born.”
