Dear users,

In 2009 we launched Google Public DNS to provide a fast, reliable, and secure DNS service to Internet users around the world. Today, we are pleased to announce that Google Public DNS now offers DNS resolution over an encrypted HTTPS connection. DNS-over-HTTPS greatly enhances privacy and security between clients and recursive resolvers, and complements DNSSEC to provide end-to-end authenticated DNS lookups.

Your application can access the API at The DNS response is encoded in JSON. Please read the details of the API at

You may also visit to try resolving a domain. The result page there also contains information to help debug domain and nameserver configuration problems.

The API and the UI are in beta and subject to changes. To report a bug or request a new feature, please submit a ticket at
