UnoTelly is a DNS service that allows to skip the restrictions and geographical limitations imposed by some services and servers on the Internet.
Have you ever wanted to listen to Pandora radio station on a country where it is not available?, or maybe you have wanted to see the movies and series on Netflix, and you have not even been able to register for an account, because your country is not in the list of allowed countries by the service.
UnoTelly arises as a solution to avoid geographic restrictions used by some streaming online services.
This service does not need to download or install any software, as that all features are accessible from the official web page of the service.
So it is only necessary to register on their website and start the 8 days free trial.
We can make use of this service in a multitude of devices and Operating systems, as to start to use it the only thing necessary is to change the DNS of the device used to access to the services with geographic restrictions. So we can use this service with Windows, Linux, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, Wii, Wii U, Playstation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, XboxOne, Apple TV, Google TV, Sony Bravia, Samsung Blu-Ray player, and more.
Because this service lies on the use of DNS, we can configure our home network Router, and use the UnoTelly DNS, in such a way that the connected devices to the local network, will automatically use the UnoTelly DNS, and therefore will be able to skip the geographic restrictions of those channels and services that transmit digital content Online.
If we want to know the DNS we should use, we must access the “Global Servers” section. In this section, we will show the fastest DNS servers. In this same section we will show a list with the available DNS servers, along with its location, and the distance that separates us from those servers.
The website has a large Data Base with information on how to configure different devices. To access it, we must go to Devices section.
Once we have configured the DNS in our devices, there is nothing more to do, just by accessing the restricted web will be enough to verify that the service is running. Where previously there was a notice indicating that we could not access the service, now, there will be the main screen of the blocked service.
This service can be used in an unlimited number of devices: PCs, laptops, tablets, game consoles, etc. These devices must belong to the same local network. If we want to, we can also use this service in different networks: home, work, vacation, etc.. But we will only be able to use the service in a network at the same time. That is to say, if we are at work and the users of the home network want to use the service, they will not be able to make use of the service.
This service has support for automatic updates of our network IP. This is necessary if our Internet provider change frequently the external IP assigned to our router (this is the usual case and is known as Dynamic IP).
The service also has support for DynDNS. So we just need to enter the host from our DynDNS account, and not have to worry about to update the IP in the control panel of the service.
