Custom DNS based on app



  • I'm up in Canada and built a server for the house recently.

    It's all up and running - my next step is to setup a VM to run PFSense.

    My only question is - how do i setup custom DNS for specific apps? for instance, say I want spotify to use a certain dns server, gamecenterlive.nhl.com to use a certain dns server, and netflix to use a certain dns server, while the rest of my connections could use the default dns server?  I'm sure there is a name for what I want to do, but I'm unsure as to what it is.

    I'm a technie so am not worried about setting it up, just need a bit of initial push in the right direction.



  • Domain overrides would be what you want there, you can send a particular domain to a specific DNS server(s).
