VPN is old school. The new way is: UnoDNS

How is UnoDNS different to a VPN?

Although the two are completely different services, in our use case of bypassing region locked content there are a few factors to consider.

First, a VPN slows down your entire internet experience, as well as your streaming ability. UnoDNS on the other hand doesn’t affect your download speeds since you don’t need to tunnel in anywhere. When you’re dealing with streaming media of any kind, speed is key. UnoDNS only changes the packets it needs to in order to get that region locked content to you; the rest of your browsing experience is unaffected – my full 50mb down/5mb up connection was maintained the whole time. UnoDNS provides servers in every corner of the globe (note: this doesn’t affect what content you can access, just ensures a great browsing speed) - and they’re all running on Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing platform – which pretty guarantees reliability and scales well for millions of users. This is what a premium DNS service is!

UnoDNS is a DNS provider

DNS is a service that’s essential to the internet. Everytime you visit a website by typing in the domain, your ISPs DNS service will be used to check the actual IP address location of that particular domain. UnoDNS is a replacement DNS server that you use instead of your regular ISP DNS look up; that’s not all though. Anytime you access one of the many supported region-locked websites, the UnoDNS servers will perform some intricate packet-level magic that fools the site into thinking you’re located within the boundaries of applicable countries. You’ll be indistinguishable from any other regular visitor in that country.

Access to all geo-locked content?

That’s right. Your UK Netflix account will suddenly have full access to US Netflix goodness – and believe me, there is a heck of a difference. I was getting a little bored of Netflix to be honest, but this has completely changed my mind – our TV remote hasn’t been touched in months. As a non-US resident, Hulu will open the doors to it’s catch-up service lovingly. BBC iPlayer won’t care where you reside, and will treat you like any other licence fee paying British citizen. The full list of channels available to you is immense. Here’s just a small selection of the more famous supported channels and services (but no means an exhaustive list – you can find a full list here) – see anything you like?
