Cloudflare, a well-known Internet performance and security company, announced the launch of 126.96.36.199—world’s fastest and privacy-focused secure DNS service that not only speeds up your internet connection but also makes it harder for ISPs to track your web history.

There are two sides of the DNS network: Authoritative (the content side) and Resolver (the consumer side).
Even if you are visiting websites over HTTPS, DNS resolvers log every site you visit, making your ISP or 3rd-party DNS services know about everything you do on the Internet.
