We use free Http DNS service of Tencent company to resolve domain more accurately and avoid domain hijacking, and we just send the domain to 119.29.29.29 and fetch the resolve result.

Reviews

I am very grateful for this plugin. I have received the message "Warning: An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration." many times when using XAMPP and WAMP servers over the years. I never had issues with the sites on hosted servers. Using WAMP, checking the PHP and Apache cURL settings and increasing execution times and addition of code to the wp-config.sys files had reduced the occurrences, so never a real problem. I recently reinstalled WAMP in order to obtain updates and be able to use PHP 7.2 and 7.3. Since the update, the occurrences of this warning had increased and recently became a serious problem. With debug 'display' set to true the pages filed with warnings and finally I could not get updates. The problem occurred on several sites and I had a feeling that changes in WP core files was the cause, possibly with provisions for parallel updates for 4.9.x and 5.1.x, although hosted sites had no similar issues. I prefer to fix problems with my own code, except when it means changing core files. I spent many hours on the issue and went through all the checks and tweaks to no avail. I had not expected to find a plugin, but came across SaFly Curl Patch and no more warnings! A truly remarkable plugin!
