Re: disable dns hijacking

there's a guy in the support forums that has been setting it manually for some people, so I assume they just broke the page and failed to fix it.

Re: disable dns hijacking

Sure as its a setting on the account, but thats not something you can personally do about it, like i suggested just changing your DNS server to a more reliable one will resolve the error search issue, but the question is, if you type an invalid domain why wouldn't you want it to provide search results to help you attempt to find the correct domain?

 

Just curious as to why you would even want to specifically disable this feature, you're still using the virgin DNS servers which can still technically hijack DNS records at their whim should they ever choose to do that

Re: disable dns hijacking

There is another thread on this forum where people have been asking for the Mods to turn off DNS highjacking, and they have been doing it.

 

Suggest you ask there

Re: disable dns hijacking

I don't want to get those error messages, it just annoys me to see it. Also i've been experiencing really slow dns query time from their servers, i prefer using google or another provider. I'll probably need to get my own router as theirs does not allow me to change it for all users.

Hi

I'm trying to reach https://my.virginmedia.com/advancederrorsearch/settings as well in order to stop the DNS hijacking but there is an error on the page still. Can you disable this for me?

Regards, Hasan

Re: disable dns hijacking

Hey 0lly,

Thanks for getting in touch Smiley Happy

You were already opted out of Advanced DNS Search, so I've enabled and disabled it again in an attempt to resolve this for you.

Can you please let me know if this has done the trick.

Catch you soon,

Take care.
