The privacy problem with DNS

Everytime you access a website you computer sends a request to your ISP’s DNS server or a third party DNS service (e.g. Google DNS) to translate the name of the site e.g. into an IP address such as

Unfortunately, the DNS servers run by most ISPs or other third party DNS services log the requests you send and may even legally sell this private data without your knowledge. In other cases they may choose to censor certain sites by not resolving the DNS request.

Zero-logging DNS servers

IVPN was built from day one with its own private DNS service and they don't log any request data. And our DNS servers are recursive (not forwarding), so we don't pass your request to any third party.

The IVPN app automatically switches your operating system DNS resolver to use an IVPN private DNS server. And as an additional layer of protection against DNS leaks the IVPN firewall also blocks DNS requests to any servers outside the IVPN network.

Features of our private DNS servers


Your privacy can be compromised by a DNS leak

Some operating systems leak DNS queries. The IVPN firewall only permits communication with IVPN DNS servers making DNS leaks impossible.


The websites you visit can’t be tracked by third party DNS

IVPN only uses recursive, not forwarding servers, so the domains you visit are never logged or shared and can’t be tracked by anyone.


You get censorship free access to the Internet

IVPN is dedicated to a free and open internet. Our DNS never restricts access. Your online activity is your business, not ours or anyone else’s.


DNS lookups in milliseconds so you're never left waiting

We have DNS servers operating in every location to ensure minimal latency and fast DNS lookups. Yes, we're obsessed with performance.


Your DNS lookups are never recorded anywhere

Our servers don't keep track of your DNS lookups in any way. If government authorities request it, we can’t give it to them — because we don’t have it.


Your DNS queries require strong encryption

Some providers choose to offer DNS over the public Internet. Our DNS are only accessible through the VPN ensuring no eavesdropping or MITM attacks.
