    192.168.1.200 is a local IP address. That'll get you nowhere.

    This new DNS server has been all the rage recently
    Quad 9 which is run in collaboration with IBM, PCH, Global Cyber Alliance, F-Secure and a few others.
    Quad9 | Internet Security & Privacy In a Few Easy Steps

    They guarantee privacy, and security, all for free.... yeah right. It does offer DNSSEC and DNS over TLS.
    Looking further into the Global Cyber Alliance we will find some interesting members...

    Everyone should run Pi-Hole. Simple setup. Cheap Raspberry Pi. Secure as hell and YOU control your DNS and Blacklists.

    Just plug it into your network, point your router BACK to Pi-Hole IP address and live happy.

    I am using simple DNSCRYPT and on that i selects a faster ( which i feels so) dns provider which provides DNSSEC with no logs.

    I configured my router for Google DNS, but when I use a VPN connection on my PC, the DNS is provided by my VPN server.

    I've finally given up on my ISP's and my 3rd party DNS. My ISP would not connect me to the correct CDNs... ridiculous. And 3rd party DNS are something I can't fully trust so I'm running a recursive resolver on my computer now.

    You can set any DNS servers you want in your Windows but once you use a VPN the provider's DNS server will override your settings

    However, some VPN do allow you to set your own DNS servers

    I use Google DNS when not connected to my VPN service, which doesn't offer any DNS options.

    I was just commenting that when I connect to my VPN provider it overrides my local DNS choice, which is normally Google DNS.

    You can set your DNS choice either in the Windows client, or your router. I personally prefer using the router settings, so that way all my clients only need to look to my router for DNS, and it only needs to be set correctly in one place. Some of my clients access the VPN, while others do not. Of course, when you tunnel through VPN, all of your local settings are bypassed, so you become dependent on your VPN client, or VPN service for the DNS configuration at that point.
