Okay, Over a month ago I started trying out NextDNS and so far I like it. BUT ... I have two questions.

Question 1

Those of us who use the free version of NextDNS get 300.000 queries per month. Now according to the logs I have been using NextDNS now for one month and five days, but it looks like I am still on the first 300.000 queries because the queries did not get reset to zero?

Question 2

And now to the really weird question. Yesterday my NextDNS statistics showed that I had used 247.238 queries, but when I checked a few minutes ago my amount of used queries is suddenly 235.102?? What the hell happened with my queries amount, has any else noticed this?

Go here to see the number of queries

Thank you for the link, but now I am even more confused. According to the account link you gave I seem to have used only 83.278 queries out of 300.000 so far? ( In more then a month, I mean I activated Cache boost and CNAME Flattening in the beginning but still? ) Then what the heck is the queries amount on my statistics page.

The link I gave you shows the queries made from the 1st of March to today (these are the ones to consider). The data in the analytics section is reset every 30 days, not at the beginning of the month.

Thanks, but that would mean that the data in the analytics section should have been reset on march the 15th for me. I started using NextDNS on February 15th so that is one month and 5 days? Oh well, I guess there is some kind of reason why that has not happened yet.
