Smart DNS is an innovative method to access the regionaly blocked websites like Hulu, Netflix, BBC, etc. right from your location with your provider’s original speed, without any major changes in your device settings.
It also has an advantage comparing to other services, because it works on a large number of devices like Windows, Mac, Apple TV, iOS, Xbox, PS3, Wii, Roku etc.
Simply changing the DNS servers on your device, you are able to unblock most popular US, UK, German, Canadian and other streaming sites. In order to bring you the best quality of all streaming media to all your devices, Smart DNS servers automatically re-route your data. Whenever you will access US, UK, German, Canadian, Polish and other websites, our servers will identify and “understand” your actions and will act accordingly.
We authenticate our clients by their IP. This way, if your IP is changed, we don’t know that you are our client or not. But if you sign in to your account on our website (the login information is a secret, so only you should know it) and press the “Validate IP” button, we can see your new IP and activate your service. You can also validate your IP by accessing the unique link provided also in your account on our website.
Smart DNS doesn’t affect your speed.
With Smart DNS you can enjoy your original speed while streaming video and audio or browsing.

If you want to encrypt your connection you can use our VPN services.
No. Your IP will not be hidden or changed.

VPN technology changes and hides your IP, encrypts your connection and automatically unlock sites giving you the possibility to surf anonymously, to be sure that you are safe while working with your bank accounts or while you are connecting to the Internet using unsecured Wi-Fi network.
Smart DNS is made just for unblocking web sites. It does not offer IP hiding and encryption.
Smart DNS is better and easier because it’s made specifically to unblock sites and works on more devices than VPN does. Smart DNS doesn’t affect your speed while on the other hand VPN lowers the speed.
