New Features : On/Off Button, better way to debug one-off blocked content, cache refresh timing feedback

On/Off Button:  We need the ability to turn off ALL the features of NextDNS WITHOUT removing the DNS entries on our routers etc.  A main shutoff button would be helpful.

Debug: better way to debug one-off blocked content.  Something to turn on that will highlight URL sources or something to see what to whitelist.  This can be really tricky to diagnose without it.

Cache timer: We need cache refresh timing feedback.  When I make changes in the NextDNS UI, when do they take effect?  Immediately?  5 secs?  10 mins?  is there a way to flush and refresh changes immediately?  Again, some UI feedback on what is happening would be helpful.

  • individual thread for each of your idea would make more sense and also partly exists.

  • When you make changes they apply immediately, on NextDNS side. Your browser/OS have their own caching logic, and usually, unless you specifically trigger it by switching DNS provider/flushing the cache, they'll still honor the TTL. After all, there's no "hey flush your entire cache" message in DNS standard.
