How to disable TalkTalk Error Pages (DNS Redirection) through Barefruit

Seen this at all?

You probably will have but maybe for another ISP, they pop up when you attempt to get to a domain name that doesn’t exist or isn’t propagated by DNS. The service itself is fairly useful as it can be used to take you to websites even if you made a stupid spelling mistake like asda.co.up, but they can also be the most annoying thing in the world if you own servers – for example before disabling this I spent 25 minutes wondering why I couldn’t reach my subdomain even though I could from basically anywhere else…

Thankfully TalkTalk have made this process relatively easy. As you see in the image at the bottom is an “About this page” link, give that a click and you’ll be greeted with this:

Simply give the “click here” link a click and you’ll be taken to the opt out page. You’ll then have to restart your router and it’s gone forever.
