1.1. What SafeDNS is made for

SafeDNS is a cloud-based content filtering service based on the domain name technology – DNS, domain name system. The DNS protocol is used to map the IP address of the site and its domain name. Computers and websites work with IP addresses but for us as customers, it is more convenient to use names of sites – domains. For example, it is easier to remember google.com, not the 8.8.8.8 IP address.

1.3. How SafeDNS works

Pretty simple. As a registered user you choose the categories of websites you wish to block in your SafeDNS filtering service Dashboard at safedns.com. A few minutes later the changes will come into effect on SafeDNS DNS servers, and the filtering rules that you have set will be applied to the protected networks and devices.

Once you have done that, all DNS requests from these networks and devices are redirected to the SafeDNS servers, where each request is categorized and checked against the content categories you have previously blocked. If there's a request for a site not included in any of the blocked categories or in any blacklist, the IP address of the site will be returned, and the web page will be opened. If the request is for a site from a blocked category, then the answer will contain IP address of the SafeDNS block page. At the same time, the quality of content filtering in many respects depends on the relevance of a website database, used for site categorization, as well as on the coverage of the internet by the database.

1.4. The basis of SafeDNS database

SafeDNS provides the best categorization database on the market. Now the database contains over 100 million sites, which covers approximately 3/4 of the existing and working internet resources.

The SafeDNS categorization database is based on:

  • Automatic categorization by the SafeDNS crawler,
  • Detection of virus propagation sites by a special module for detecting malicious resources,
  • Manual categorization by SafeDNS specialists,
  • DNS logs of SafeDNS users,
  • Custom categorization.
