So I gave this a go. Using it to help me select the fastest free DNS for my location. Here are some screenshots:

It’s nifty. Easy to use since I can figure it out! lol

I wish the demo banner didn’t have to be there. If it’s free, it’s free. :slight_smile: Maybe add an “upgrade” link in the footer instead of branding ‘Demo’.

The data and UI is useful. I will choose Cloudflare (I hope I’m reading the results correctly. However, leaving it running for another 24 hours before deciding.

Can this run in docker? I’d love to set it up on my VPS :slight_smile:

Hey Rukie,

Thanks for trying out our new tool! We’re so happy you found it easy to use, since that’s definitely one of our main goals!

Also, thank you for the feedback on the demo banner!

Cloudflare indeed seems to be the best choice of DNS Provider. If you have any questions, you can also use the chat on our website for a quick response :slight_smile:
