What happens after 300k queries?

NextDNS can be used for free up to 300k queries per month. Once this limit is reached, it becomes a standard DNS resolver, with no filtering, no logging etc.

You get a first email notification when crossing 250k queries and another one when the 300k limit is reached.

A paid plan gives unlimited queries.

  • I understand that the logging and blocking features stop working after 300K queries.
    But am I correct in saying that the DoH stays active and your queries are still sent over HTTPS to NextDNS?

      If in Settings - Logs - Retention you set up a period shorter than 1 month or if you did a Clear logs or  you changed the Storage location of course you can't figure it out.

  • I disabled logging in the settings so how are you keeping track of the number of requests if there are no logs being saved?

      IP Logs save the domains that are hit, if they are blocked or not and other information like what IP and client requested the domain. The amount of requests you made, that's different, on free accounts, they have to keep track of the information to stop abuse.

      So, logs save domains and how they were processed and information about them.

      The amount of queries made is probably seen to stop absue and doesn't have any real information as it's simply the amount of requests a user made nothing identifiable, if they didn't limit it, I mean why would people buy pro most people would simply abuse the system.

      Hey I did not ask 'why' but 'how' are they able to track the number of queries without logging? Are there any other logs we are not aware about? (privacy issue)

    • IP it's just a counter incremented per request / per account, this does not require logging.

  • Hello, So the 300k queries reset every month like I used 300k queries this February then does that mean the 300k queries reset when it hits The first of March? And all the restricted features will now be open again?
