SmartyDNS Launches Service
SmartyDNS is up and running. If you’re tired of being shut out of some of the most popular sites on the Internet because of where you live, you’ll want to take a look.
What it Does
SmartyDNS is not a VPN service and that’s an important distinction to keep in mind. This service will allow you to bypass geo-restrictions on content, which is a great feature in and of itself, however. What the service doesn’t do is encrypt your traffic. You’ll still be subject to the same monitoring that ISPs and other entities are doing online, but your DNS service will allow you to access content from sites such as the BBC and others that make their content freely available online, unless you happen to be located in a country where they block it. There’s nothing illegal about this; it’s the same as going to that country and watching the content on a computer in that nation.
The service is available for $4.99 per month. Right now, however, the launch offer lets you sign up for 50% off, so it’s a good idea to take advantage of this offer if you’re curious. There is an annual plan that’s available for $41.99 per month, as well.
