Pi-hole DNS Blocking

Its been a while since posting anything new so here it is.

Pi-hole is a Domain Name Service (DNS) sinkhole. The Open Source project at pi-hole.net is intended to improve web browsing security and overall browsing experience.

The software can be installed in a variety of ways – I decided on the Raspberry Pi method. Now my local Raspberry Pi 3 acts as a DNS cache/resolver/sinkhole/filter on my local network.

My overall browsing speed has increased and I feel that the level of security is appropriate. Of course the browser can easily get confused on what to display if a website is blocked and most of the time a simple space is added. Works with all client OS’s, Linux, OS X, IOS, … .
