Hi All 

Im a kiwi living in Australia and have built a new smart DNS system for geo unblocking services from around the world. I'm now looking for some testers to test the service before I put it in to public beta. The site has a few unique features that no other smart DNS has.
1) you can have up to 3 locations (different internet connections) unblocked.
2) you can add your own URLs (upto 20) to unblock and what country you want to make the URLs think your coming from.
3) you can disable services you don't want

it also supports dynamic dns so if you dont have a fixed IP you don't have to worry. For a full list of channels the service currently supports see https://dns4me.net/channels 
If your keen on helping me to improve the service, goto the contact us page on https://dns4me.net and send me a message with the username you would like.

Thanks
Jason K

Do you have a smart in address update like unblockus where you just need to browse to the unblockus website and it automatically updates your ip?

Also you say that your original internet speed isn't affected, does this mean that traffic doesn't go through your servers for the selected channels? Or does it mean your servers have more than enough bandwidth to handle your projected amount of clients?

One more thing, what's the cost? Monthly payments only?

Hi charsleysa

No we don't have a smart address to update your IP address this is why we support dynamic dns servers like noip.com, this way there is no need to browse back to the site.

The internet speed stuff refers to the way the service works, when using a VPN service all you traffic is routed via the VPN server, with our smart DNS service only the initial http request is sent via our servers all video/audio is sent direct + our servers have big enough pipes to handle a lot of traffic.

Thanks

Quick review after 10 minutes of having a beta account.

Easy to use, works well, traffic is direct confirmed using traceroute.

The only bug I've noticed is that the Netflix and CBS app don't seem to load properly.

Hi charsleysa

What device are you using? you may have to restart it to flush any old DNS entries.  also make sure the service is enabled in the dns4me services console.

Thanks

Android 4.2, a device reboot seemed to have fix the issue.
All in all, an excellent service.

Just one question, does this service allow us to access Netflix UHD content?

DarkShadow: What countries are supported for the custom URL service? 

At the moment i only have servers in USA/UK/Ireland/Brazil/Australia/NZ (all of which are available to use with the custom domains function) we intend to expand this later on but during this testing phase we are trying to keep the costs down.

OK. When you add servers in the future, first interest for me would be Hong Kong and second interest would be for China.
