Hi Guys

What is OverPlay Smart Dns Proxy and what are the benefits?

You may have noticed an extra banner at the bottom of a few of the blogs that look like this.



Some of you maybe wondering Whats it all about? What is Dns? How can it benefit me?

OverPlay Smart Dns  is an amazing service and i will look into it in more detail in this blog.

So what is a Smart DNS?

A smart DNS proxy server enables a client, such as a computer or mobile device, to access region-restricted or blocked content from anywhere in the world. A connection between the client and the site serving restricted content is established through a proxy server located within the approved areas for streaming or downloading the content. Unlike a virtual private network (VPN) proxy, a smart DNS proxy does not encrypt communications and does not direct all internet traffic via the proxy. Instead, it selectively directs traffic for certain sites, typically those of popular streaming services, via the proxy. This is achieved by overriding selected DNS entries so that DNS queries resolve to the addresses of a proxy rather than the real server. As with a VPN proxy, this allows a user to stream or download content which is normally blocked for viewing by people within that region.

What are the advantages of a Smart Dns over say a VPN?

Vpn are known to drop some of your internet connection speed where as Smart Dns does not allowing you to benefit from services that some vpn servers are not fast enough for.

Will cover this again in a moment.

Certain websites and online services or Android Apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, BBC iPlayer, Nbc Sports Extra, Tidal, Pandorra, Espn Watch, MLB Tv, Direct TV and NFL Game pass contain region restricted (or geo-restricted) content. This means content is only available for streaming or downloading by users who live within the permitted Countries or regions.


However, by using a VPN Service or Smart DNS  you can easily bypass these regional restrictions so you can still stream/download/view content from your favorite websites such as Hulu, Netflix, BBC, Pandora, Spotify, etc. if you happen to live outside the permitted regions.



List Of Reasons Why Smart DNS IS Better Than A VPN Service To Stream Blocked Content:

·       Speed And Efficiency. Smart DNS technology will allow you to stream, download or view content much faster than a VPN because a Smart DNS system only re-routes (or re-directs) certain portions of your traffic through its server.

·       Excellent Compatibility With Other Devices. VPNs will often use a complex system to establish a single VPN tunnel between your device and the restricted content. A Smart DNS Proxy does not. This means a Smart DNS Proxy Server is much more compatible with all of your devices such as Laptops, Gaming Consoles, Mobile ‘Smart Phones’ and ‘Smart TVs’.

·       Smart DNS Setup Is Very Easy To Install. A connection via a Smart DNS system does not require complicated software installation or elaborate manual configuration necessary for setting up a In order to stream content from blocked websites.

·       Smart DNS Is Less Expensive (or cheaper) Than a VPN Service. Typically, a Smart DNS subscription will cost you much less than a subscription to a VPN Service.


The good thing about the service from OverPlay Smart DNS  is you also get a vpn service that works alongside the DNS service and its very good and simple enough to setup.
