Ad Blocking DNS Server


Pi-Hole will block and prevent advertisements from appearing on all your devices.

This lightweight DNS server runs on your LAN and uses lists of URLs that filter HTTP requests for advertisements by blocking the requests locally (on the DNS level), thus preventing a lot of unnecessary downloading and saving a lot of bandwidth.

This makes for a speedier web browsing and a glorious ad-free experience!  

This will also work with commercial-like video ads on sites like YouTube.  Combine with a VPN server for an ad-free cellphone.
