HDNS: Access the Decentralized Internet on any device

HDNS is a DNS resolver for Handshake websites that you can start using in seconds!

Compatible with the existing Internet
When you switch to HDNS normal websites like and still work seamlessly as you gain access to the 10,000 (and growing!) websites on Handshake’s decentralized Internet.

Privacy first
DNS is usually slow and insecure. Your ISP, and anyone else listening in on the Internet, can see every site you visit and every app you use — even if their content is encrypted. Creepily, some DNS providers sell data about your Internet activity or use it to target you with ads.

HDNS supports DNS-over-HTTPS, the modern and encrypted DNS protocol that protects against DNS spying and tampering.

Setting up HDNS takes seconds if you’ve changed your DNS before and only two minutes if you’re a computer novice. No technical skill or special software required! Follow the steps for your OS:
