Does DNS Test Leak My Real IP Address?

The website which makes the DNS test can only know our DNS provider. It can’t know our real DNS settings or our real IP address behind the proxy.

Question: I use a proxy (in My IP Hide) in the United Kindom. But the DNS servers are in Belgium. Does it leak my real IP address?

Answer: The short answer is No. Below is a detailed explanation.

Websites Know Your DNS IP?

The websites which can show our DNS servers are using the same technology. We use this one as an example: https://dnsleaktest.com

Here is the test result for our My IP Hide server 213.229.74.238 (UK5).

It seems that the website dnsleaktest.com knows our DNS servers. In fact, it only knows the ISP of our DNS because our real DNS servers are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 instead of 74.125.x.x.

My IP Hide Is 13 Times Faster Than VPN

We tested the speed of My IP Hide as well as the major VPN protocols (OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPsec). The result is that My IP Hide is 13 times faster than VPN.

Recently we made a test to check the speed of our product My IP Hide. It’s an encrypted proxy service to hide IP and unblock websites. In theory, it should be much faster than its main competitor, VPN. How was its performance in reality? Let’s see.

Speed Comparison

Since the test report is long, we put the result on the top. Here is a chart to show the speed of the VPN protocols and My IP Hide.

From that graph, we can see that My IP Hide achieved 83% (285Mb/s) of the maximum speed (345Mb/s, direct connection, no proxy, no VPN), while OpenVPN only retained 6% (22Mb/s). Since OpenVPN is the VPN industry standard protocol, we can conclude that My IP Hide is 13 times faster than VPN.

Fix the Proxy Settings Locked by Spigot Malware

It’s the process how we fixed the browser hijacking for a user. A Spigot malware locked his IE proxy settings. We finally solve the problem by Malwarebytes.

Recently one of our customers had a strange problem. Some program locked his proxy settings. It was one kind of browser hijacking.

We could not change the proxy settings from the Internet Options dialog. There was an error message “Some settings are managed by your system administrator.

Our product My IP Hide failed to work because of it. It showed the error message “You are using the unencrypted regular proxy 127.0.0.1. Your real IP address may leak.

Google Proxies Are All Dead

We used to provide a list of free Google proxy servers on google-proxy.net and update it daily. But Google blocks all the public proxies in the year 2016. So there is no google proxy server (IP address and port) on that page anymore.

What is Google Proxy?

A Google proxy (also known as the google-passed proxy) is an HTTP proxy which has the following two features.

1. It must support searching on Google. Proxies in China cannot access Google. So they are not Google proxy. Since Google uses HTTPS instead of HTTP as its primary protocol, a Google proxy should support HTTPS/SSL.

2. Google must not block it. To stop abuse, Google blocks suspect IP addresses which have unusual traffic. A Google proxy should not be on the blacklist of Google.
