(Stability) Issues Public Pi-hole service

Update (26/02/2018): The Public Pi-hole is back (up)! For more information, please visit: https://freek.ws/public-pi-hole/

This is just a short message to let you all know that I am aware of the (stability) issues with the free public Pi-hole service I am offering.

Some of these issues were caused by outages at my hosting provider:

However, the current issue is caused due to changes I made to Pi-hole core files a couple of months ago to support SSL before it was officially implemented by the Pi-hole development team. Due to these changes, a complete re-installation of Pi-hole is the easiest way forward, since many core files have been adjusted by the official Pi-hole development team. I am planning on doing so this Monday, the 29th of January. Additionally, I’ll try to setup a secondary node/resolver as well for redundancy.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused and thanks in advance for your understanding.

    1. Thanks for your message.

      I am aware of the issues with my Pi-hole. The DNS service should still be running although the webinterface is broken.
      I am short on time right now, but I’m trying to get it fixed asap!

      Kind regards,
      Freek

  1. It appears to be down again. I, too, have difficulties with providers … and time to get to projects. Thank you for offering what you can – free as in “beer” to the rest of us. I hope you get some time to yourself as well as to fix this. The 2nd PiHole listed in the comments section (151.80.145.143) is still operational as of the time of this message. We’re still rooting for yours!!

    1. My Public Pi-hole is back (up)…. And it’s stronger than ever!

      I’ve setup a secondary node in the UK for redundancy, as well as adding 7 new ad-lists and a status page to communicate with you guys about outages and scheduled maintenance. For more information, please visit: https://freek.ws/public-pi-hole/

      Thank you for your continued support. Enjoy!
