How To Host Your Own DNS-over-HTTPS And DNS-over-TLS Services

Saturday, October 10, 2020

With Technitium DNS Server, you can not just consume DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) or DNS-over-TLS (DoT) services using forwarders but you can also host these services yourself. There can be several reasons to host your own DoH or DoT service. You may wish to have better privacy by not sharing your data with public DNS providers. Or your network or ISP blocks popular DoT and DoH services and also interferes with unencrypted DNS traffic.

In this post, we will setup DoT and DoH services on a cloud server and configure a locally running Technitium DNS Server to use the DoH service as a forwarder bypassing any network restrictions that may be in place.
