You are welcome to use our free, censorship-free, resilient and stable
$ host dns2.digitalcourage.de
dns2.digitalcourage.de has address 126.96.36.199
dns2.digitalcourage.de has IPv6 address 2a02:2970:1002:0:5054:8aff:fe12:db49
Whether you consider Digitalcourage e.V. a major player is up to you.
Here is some background in English: https://digitalcourage.de/en
(Tyler, I know you know us since we as an EDRi member supported your
organisation's entry application.)
More specific information on our DNS relays is available in German
but see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitalcourage for a summary.
This is not a huge machine but it could take some more load. We have
configured DNSSEC and are looking into implementing DNS-over-TLS now.
You might ask what happened to dns.digitalcourage.de. That is our
older open DNS resolver. We have run it since 2009. It has been
overloaded recently, and we recommend that people switch to dns2.
