      Another option is: validate your IP addresses instantly through “Validate IP Link” (2). By choosing this option you don’t have to sign in to your Client Area each time you want to validate the IP address. By adding this link to your browser favorites/bookmarks your IP address will be validated each time you load this URL into your browser.

      If our service is not functioning, please validate your IP address again by following steps 1-4. Your IP address have to be validated every time it changes.

      It is important to not share the Validate IP Link with anyone! It is particular and unique for every single client. If you give or share it with other people, your Smart DNS service won’t be working.

  2. Change your iPhone / iPod DNS server address

    This has to be done only once.

    Before you switch to our DNS addresses, make sure you write down your current DNS addresses, so you can keep these numbers in case you need to get back to your original settings. If your original configuration were set to “Automatic”, just change your DNS settings back to “Automatic” in order to get back to your original settings.
    1. Go to “Settings” (3).
