Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy 0.9.3



Portable Acrylic is a local DNS proxy for Windows which improves the performance of your computer by caching the responses coming from your DNS servers and helps you fight unwanted ads through a custom HOSTS file (optimized for handling hundreds of thousands of domain names) with support for wildcards and regular expressions. When you browse a web page a portion of the loading time is dedicated to name resolution (usually from a few milliseconds to 1 second or more) while the rest is dedicated to the transfer of the web page contents and resources to your browser. What Acrylic does is to reduce the time dedicated to name resolution.


Acting as a local DNS proxy server, Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy aims to change the way your browser performs name resolution, especially for pages you visit often. And it does so by caching the reply of the DNS servers, which can also come in handy in case your server is down.

A direct result of DNS caching with Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy is a computer that runs smoother and whose performance is increased.

In short, Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy copies and remembers the responses received from the DNS servers in a text file, being able to access them easier.

As such, name resolution during browsing sessions can be done faster and, although we are talking about just a few milliseconds, a significant amount of time is saved in a larger period of time.

Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy is deployed as a Windows service, using Google's Public DNS servers. It can perform concurrent request forwarding to multiple DNS servers and allows DNS updating without user intervention. Both static and dynamic cache are created for each received request.

Its configuration can be easily changed to meet your needs, just by editing a text file. From the address and the port number of the primary DNS server, further to affinity masks, and server addresses, you can edit it all.

And while tampering with the parameters might shape Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy better for your requirements, using it with the default values should be enough to enhance the performance of your DNS servers.

The configuration files contain both instructions and examples for you to understand the way the entire mechanism works, from managing regular expressions to define rules and configurations, to adding exceptions, and initiating the host resolver.

The package also comes with a DNS proxy controller, which can be used to register new proxy services, manage the running DNS proxy service, edit the HOSTS file, and run the debug log.

And speaking of the HOSTS file, Portable Acrylic DNS Proxy can be used to automatically block ads even before they are downloaded.
