DNSMasq not only offers a modicum of privacy

How?

The cache still has to go out unstealthed on your PUBLIC IP to resolve the URL from some full service Name Server the first time you visit - so where is the privacy?

If you're worried about DNS Privacy (which in my opinion is a oxymoron), use DuckDuckGo https://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html

Re: Alternative DNS Services

This writer needs to do some fact checking, I use OpenDNS here and it is free. Yes, there is a paid version, but it's not needed in order to benefit from the service.

I use it in conjunction with IPCop firewall providing me with a very secure network that I can choose what to block access to. Works great for me.
