Smart DNS Proxy & VPN Review



Smart DNS Proxy is a popular DNS service that allows users to unblock websites, global video and music streaming services like Netflix USA, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Pandora, Amazon Prime. Smart DNS Proxy advertises that they can bypass Netflix proxy error, but in reality the service is not stable enough to be recommended for this purpose.

Since Smart DNS doesn’t offer encrypted VPN tunnels, it’s supposed to be faster than VPN, but that highly depends on DNS servers setup. Smart DNS works on any device: desktop and mobile platforms, Smart TVs, Gaming Consoles, media players and routers. Smart DNS also requires no software installation. Once you change your DNS settings, only your DNS queries will be re-routed through Smart DNS Proxy servers that automatically determine when you are trying to access a website restricted for your area. Hence, once the DNS has been changed, you can unblock websites in the supported regions at any time without having to connect to/disconnect from the service.

Smart DNS Proxy offers DNS servers in 31 countries.

While Smart DNS has some limitations on 3G/4G connections, hotel networks and Wi-Fi hotspots that do not allows 3rd party DNS settings, Smart DNS Proxy offers a setup called Smart VPN that overcomes this issue and allows their customers to stream favourite multimedia content from any kind of internet connection.

Smart DNS Proxy also offers additional layer of protection with their free VPN service. The infrastructure supports OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPsec and PPTP protocols in 40 regions.
