ProxyDNS Review – An Affordable Content Unlocking Solution

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

ProxyDNS is a content-unlocking service which removes geographical blocks used by content creators and media sites. The service was launched in 2012 and it is one of the many SmartDNS solutions currently available in the market. In this exhaustive review, I will list down the pros and cons of the service as well as recommend whether the service is good enough for subscription.

Server Locations & Site Access – ProxyDNS has deployed SmartDNS servers in United States and United Kingdom. The services makes it incredibly easy to unblock On-Demand sites such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Sling, Netflix UK, BBC iPlayer, Grooveshark, Spotify, Crunchyroll, Crackle, Cartoon Network, iTV, Spotify UK, NBC, TheWB, Amazon Instant Video, MTV, Last.fm, Turntable, Vevo, Pandora, ESPN, Songza, Rdio, Disney, Fox, WWE, ABC, Showtime and CBS from any part of the world. This is indeed a good news for expats, tourists, business flyers as well as others who are interested in streaming premium American or British services from abroad.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – ProxyDNS works by routing only a very small part of your traffic through its servers. Due to this reason, your existing speed and bandwidth does not get affected in adverse way. Since the service doesn’t use complex algorithms or encryption, you would be able to stream your favorite streaming services at ultra-fast speeds.

Privacy Settings – ProxyDNS doesn’t route your sensitive information through its servers nor does it collect or store usage logs. However, you also need to keep in mind that the service cannot protect your information from surveillance or interception since it is not a VPN service. Although the company will protect customer information to the maximum possible extent, it also reserves the right to investigate illegal activities and hand over information to law enforcement officials.

Supported Operating Systems – ProxyDNS works on many popular devices and OS including Windows (7, 8, Vista, XP), Mac OS X, Linux, Android, Apple TV, PS3, PS4, iPads, iPhones, XBox 360, Kindle Fire, Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, FireStick, Wii, Smart TVs as well as routers (DD-WRT, TP-Link and D-Link). There is a ProxyDNS client available for Windows but you can also configure the service manually on a device of your choice. The setup involves changing the DNS settings assigned by your ISP to the ones supplied by the company and it can be done in under 2 minutes on most devices. The provider has published detailed setup guides for most Operating systems so even tech challenged people can unlock their favorite streaming services within no time.

Customer Support – ProxyDNS offers 24X7 customer support through support tickets.

Pricing Options – ProxyDNS’ SmartDNS solution costs $3.9 for a month, $10 for 3 months, $18 for 6 months and $35 for a year. There is a free trial available which allows you to unblock a limited number of websites. For new customers, there is also a 7 day money back guarantee available.

Final Verdict – On the whole, ProxyDNS doesn’t disappoint with its service. The service is not only affordable, it also supports a wide variety of streaming services and is available for most popular devices and Operating systems. I certainly recommend that you test drive the service and start using it for your streaming and content-unblocking needs. For more information, please visit: www.proxydns.co.
