You can now speed up your Internet just by simply changing your DNS.
You might have heard of Google Public DNS, but it is not the fastest. Cloudflare teamed up with APNIC to create a DNS over HTTPS which encrypts your DNS queries and is able to resolve queries faster than all other DNS.
Most DNS, if not all, do not provide secure queries. So even if you have established secure connections, your DNS queries are not encrypted.
