Remote DNS

Using Remote DNS gives you a DNS resolve server similar to that of the Proxy peer (the origin of the Proxy's IP). This makes your request look more credible as the resolve server is usually located geographically close to the IP, whereas without using Remote DNS the resolve server is one of Bright Data's Super-Proxies which may be located in another country. To use Remote DNS:

  • Via Proxy Manager, go to Edit Port > IP control > set "DNS Lookup" to "Remote - resolved by peer"
  • Via API simply add it to your username string. For example:
    lum-customer-{YOUR_CUSTOMER_ID}-zone-{YOUR_ZONE}-dns-remote
