Welcome to the Fortress Linux DNS and Secure Cloud VPN Services
Fortress Linux DNS
Fortress Linux DNS is a free domain name resolution service that resolves your DNS requests in a much safer and more reliable way than the DNS servers provided by your ISP. FLDNS helps users keep safe online with its domain filtering features, without requiring any hardware or software installation.
- Security - As a provider of advanced computer security solutions, FITSS is keenly aware of the dangers that plague the Internet today and references FLDNS with a real-time block list (RBL) of harmful malware, spyware and tracking sites. Including domains that are used by botnets, hackers and advertising agencies.
FLDNS will warn you whenever you attempt to access a site or server containing potentially threatening or privacy invading content. Additionally, directing your requests through our highly secure FLDNS servers reduces the exposure to DNS Cache Poisoning attacks that may affect your currently used DNS servers.
- Privacy - FLDNS does not collect your DNS queries unlike other DNS services.
- Coverage - The coverage of FLDNS and all our other online security solutions extend from home and enterprise networks to nomadic users connecting with laptops, smartphones and tablets from cafés, parks, retail stores, planes, hotels and public transportation.
- Get a free domain name - Another unique feature of the FLDNS service, is that users can create a free domain name which will be accessible by everyone who uses FLDNS. Please follow the "Free Domain Name" link at the top of this page for more information.
How to install FLDNS
- Installing FLDNS is easy. You only have to change the DNS settings of your operating system or router to protect your computers and online privacy with FLDNS. Please consult your OS or router manual on how to change the default DNS servers:
Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52
You must first visit the test site fldns.org to activate FLDNS for your connection. Please visit fldns.org again if you are unable to load other websites.
How to use FLDNS
- You can browse the Internet like before after installing FLDNS. One of the first things a user will notice is that undesired content like advertisements will disappear from websites.
- Whitelisting - Though FLDNS uses advanced security and malware detection technologies that are updated on a daily basis, it is possible that certain domains are filtered as a false-positive. In this situation, you can whitelist a domain at the presented FLDNS warning page.
- Blacklisting - By following the "Blacklist Domain" link here and at the top of this page, you can submit new domains that are not already blocked by FLDNS.
