How does a smart DNS work?

Is DNS better than VPN?

Because the Smart DNS does not encrypt data, the connection between website and computer is much faster than the connection established through a VPN tunnel.

Now, it is true that your ISP might interfere with your Smart DNS usage if they use a Transparent DNS Proxy, but that doesn’t make the service illegal. A Smart DNS might even be legal in countries with oppressive governments that ban access to certain online content.
