Smart DNS proxy review

The internet, which was invented to bring us together, seems to be doing nothing more than bringing people apart. In the past, the internet was not as widely used as it is today. The internet was a fad, which most people thought would run its course. However, instead of the internet running its course, it’s become more closed off.
People are frightened when they go online and do usual tasks that hackers are going to steal their information. Geographical restrictions have stopped internet users from being able to watch certain viral videos, or go to certain websites. Proxy servers can help eliminate the gaps that the internet has created.

What Is Smart DNS Proxy?
Smart DNS Proxy is a proxy server service. Proxy servers bare some similarities to VPNs. They allow you to visit sites that are blocked for you, due to Geographic’s or other blocks that are placed on specific websites. Just imagine how it would feel to be able to go online, and not having to worry about hitting any roadblocks along the way. Although the internet is an open platform that is free for everyone to visit and frequent, there are places where many countries are unable to go. Proxys eliminate all these blocks.

The Smart DNS Proxy Promise
Smart DNS makes a promise to its customers that it is always secure, is faster than a VPN service, and can be used on a global platform. To test this promise, we compared the Proxy service offered by Smart DNS to various VPN carriers. Surprisingly, the speeds of both were so close to comparison that it is difficult to state which service won.

Supported Operating Systems
Smart DNS Proxy can be used on various operating systems and devices. Since there is no software to have to install, utilizing the proxy service on all of your devices is actually pretty simple. The operating systems that are supported are Apple IOS, Android, Windows, and MAC. The devices that the service can be used on are computers, televisions, tablets, and smartphones.

Price and Plans
Smart DNS Proxy gives users the ability to take advantage of a 14 day trial period of their services. During this period, there will be no credit cards required, unless a user decides that they would like to permanently have the services. If a user decides they want to keep the service, they will have the ability to choose between four different pricing plans.
The monthly plan is $4.90 per month. The three month plan is $12.90. An annual plan is $34.90. However, the best priced plan is the plan that lasts the longest. The twenty four month plan is available for $49.90. This plan gives a fifty seven percent discount , over the length of time that the service is rendered.

Our Rating
