Custom DNS servers

To add an additional DNS server, go to the 'Internet safety' page in your router's web interface and click 'Add a DNS server' in the 'DNS servers' section.

In the 'DNS server address' field, enter the IP address of the DNS server (in our example it is a public DNS server from Google 8.8.8.8) and then click 'Save'.

The DNS servers added here will be used by home devices that don't have any Internet safety service applied.

You can add additional DNS servers for specific domains. For example:

NOTE: Important! The logic of DNS in Keenetic routers is that requests are sent to all available DNS servers, both received from the ISP and entered manually. And the reply that comes more quickly is used for name resolution.

TIP: Tip: Sometimes, you need to know through which DNS server your requests are processed. This can be done using online services, for example, whatsmydnsserver.com or dnsleaktest.com.
