New Quad9 DNS Privacy and Security Service

Looks similar to some other DNS services but promises no tracking and better protection from malicious sites.

FWIW that video does not show the IPV6 equivalent of 9.9.9.9

That is 2620:fe::fe as far as I can tell.

I just did some DNS benchmarks. QUAD9 was slower than Google DNS and OpenDNS but was still a respectable performer at #3 in the public name server list. Cached Name performance was about twice as long as Google or OpenDNS though. Primus beat out Google by a small margin. Megapath was also slightly faster than QUAD9. The differences seen were likely due to server location rather than any significant difference in server speed.

Results from fastest to slowest were: Primus, Google, OpenDNS, Megapath, QUAD9.

Code:
Final benchmark results, sorted by nameserver performance:
 (average cached name retrieval speed, fastest to slowest)

The ipv6 address is confirmed as 2620:fe::fe in another article.

DNS resolver 9.9.9.9 will check requests against IBM threat database
