Some DNS servers flush the cache when the configuration changes

unbound and systemd-resolved flush the cache when the network configuration changes. However dnsmasq with the default setup keeps its cache when the configuration changes. Is this information worth adding to the comparison table? -- Pdc (talk) 12:40, 3 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Implement DoT with stunnel on any server

Can't we use stunnel with any of the listed servers ? I am not sure if it is possible to forward every queries from the server to stunnel, or how to make every answer from the server go through stunnel (maybe use iptables ?) -- Apollo22 (talk) 21:01, 25 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't know about this, I've yet to research in enough detail. What I'd really like to offer readers is a way they can replace insecure outbound DNS requests with a more trustless implementation of DNS-Over-HTTPS (or DoT). I say 'trustless' because what it would do is send the request to a few DNS servers, say four, and will wait for three identical responses before visiting that IP address. Is there anything that does this?
I think is imperative that we have something like this. The amount of centralization that internet has experienced is something I find dangerous for a number of reasons (Archaid (talk) 17:27, 16 September 2020 (UTC)).Reply[reply]

Add and potentially replace cloudflared with cloudflare-warp-bin

IIRC cloudflared is for servers to connect to Cloudflare and Warp is in fact for client users. See and

The page does not say that cloudflared is for clients. Cloudflare WARP is not a DNS resolver, it is a proprietary VPN service: [1], [2], [3]. — Lahwaacz (talk) 17:59, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Add information about in the "Local domain names" subsection

The RFC 8375 defines the special-use domain name "" for home networks. Should we mention using "" as the search domain would be preferable in local home networks, unless one has already purchased a domain name for usage inside a home network?

In addition, the section "Local domain names" mentions "" as the search domain and although the "" domain has been assigned as a special-use domain for documentation, would mentioning "" instead be preferable? Ayushnix (talk) 07:10, 27 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
