DoH and DoT
A&A run DNS over HTTPS (DoT) and DNS over TLS (DoT) resolves. There is information here: https://aa.net.uk/dns which includes information on privacy and the terms and conditions.
As of September 2019, this is considered a 'trial' service, but is expected to continue and be an 'official' service for customers.
|DoT||https://dns.aa.net.uk/dns-query||Usually set in your web browser, where supported.|
|DoH||dns.aa.net.uk||Usually set in your operating, where supported.|
|Standard DNS||188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206||Our standard 'port 53' servers.|

Using DOH with curl
Note: curl version 7.62.0 or above is required, here's an example:
curl --doh-url https://dns.aa.net.uk/dns-query https://www.aa.net.uk
This will download the www.aa.net.uk webpage but would have used the DOH server to resolve the DNS.
