Free Public Pi-hole

Pi-hole is Network-Wide Ad Blocker that blocks ads of all sorts at the router level. It blocks advertisements on any device and improves overall network performance. For more information, watch this short video below.

For those of you who don’t own a Raspberry Pi, I’ve setup an internet facing Pi-hole server. It’s running from a Virtual Private Server (VPS) in a datacenter, so no worries about latency or bandwidth issues. The exact details are as follows:

  1. Hi, thanks for the public pihole server. Much appreciated. Could you please enable ip v6 as well? I notice sone ads are getting through and they are usually on ip v6.

    Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your suggestion! I’m quite busy at the moment, but I’ll put it on my todo list :) My VPS already has IPv6 support so it shouldn’t cost too much time to implement, probably just some firewall rules and re-running the pi-hole setup. ETA is about 1 month, please check back by then!

    1. Yes, you’re totally right :) I’m already using Let’s Encrypt but something went wrong with the automatic renewal of the certificates. I’m quite busy at the moment, so I’ll put it on my todo list as well. In the mean time you can access the stats page using http, it doesn’t need any credentials anyways so. The server that is running Pi-Hole itself is still getting automatic (security) updates so no worries there.

    2. I’ve fixed the automatic certificate renewal. The certificate warning should now be gone. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  3. Another public pihole is located at 83.80.239.38 can be added as second DNS

    Is there someone that can provide me a free vps with static IP to host a better performing public pihole
