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.
