Is 1.1.1.1 Cloudflare or Megapath?


#1

Just ran GNC’s DNS Benchmark for the first time. I’m in NYC on FIOS 1Gbps, and 1.1.1.1 is high on the list (good).

However, GNC shows the owner of 1.1.1.1 as “MEGAPATH2-US - Megapath Networks, Inc., US”.

Who is that?

FYI - GNC shows the owner of 1.0.0.1 as “CLOUDFLARENET - Cloudflare, Inc., US”.

So - what’s going on, bro?

“Ownership” of 1.1.1.1 is still being corrected across various vendors and services. I suspect it’s doing a lookup from your home machine.

Would you be able to run a ‘traceroute’ to 1.1.1.1 from your machine and post the results here?
