What is dnscrypt

from dnscrypt.info

DNSCrypt is a protocol that authenticates communications between a DNS client and a DNS resolver. It prevents DNS spoofing. It uses cryptographic signatures to verify that responses originate from the chosen DNS resolver and haven’t been tampered with. It is an open specification, with free and open source reference implementations, and it is not affiliated with any company nor organization. Free, DNSCrypt-enabled resolvers are available all over the world.

As well as having secure DNS, what about building a child friendly DNS Server for the house that filters adult content - ideas here

How to connect

Clients exist for linux, windows, osx, ios and android. All can be found here dnscrypt.info/implementations

A really simple solution is to use DNSCrypt-Proxy - [https://github.com/DNSCrypt/dnscrypt-proxy]

Hosting

dnscrypt.uk hosts two services - dnscrypt.uk (on a DigitalOcean droplet ) and v.dnscrypt.uk (on a vultr high frequency compute). Both services also host function as anonymous relays.
