Windows configuration instructions

You can easily configure HNSDNS on Windows. Be aware that this will configure it for a single network adapter. In other words, if you use WiFi and Ethernet, you'll need to repeat these steps for both of them.

Setting everything up

To setup HNSDNS on Windows, you'll just need to follow these simple steps. Note: you may require admin access.

  1. Press + R, then type ncpa.cpl and click Enter ().

  2. Choose the network adapter that you use. Then right-click in it and press Properties.

  3. Select "Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", then click "Properties".

  4. Check "Use the following DNS server addresses".

  5. Write the following settings:

    • for the Preferred DNS server.

    • for the Alternate DNS server.

  6. Click "Ok". Now let's do the same for IPv6.

    NOTE: this is only necessary if your ISP support IPv6. You can quickly check that trying to access If it shows a bunch of number separated by colons (:), then you have IPv6. If it shows a browser error saying that it can't reach the website, then you only have IPv4.

  7. Select "Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6)", then click "Properties".

  8. Check "Use the following DNS server addresses".

  9. Write the following settings:

    • 2a01:7e01:e002:c300:: for the Preferred DNS server.

    • 2a01:7e01:e002:c500:: for the Alternate DNS server.

  10. Click "Ok", then "Close", and you're now ready! Try visiting lumito./ in your browser. Note: it may take a while to load.

Note: For some reason, Windows doesn't handle well domains without a dot in it. That's the reason of why I placed that dot before the slash in the domain name. So, if you want to access a domain like example/, you'll need to add a dot before the slash. However, if you try to access a domain like test.example/, it'll work just fine.
