Pihole Blocklists

on
August 2, 2020

I’ve been running a pihole with unbound for about a year and I’m VERY happy with it. I haven’t run into any issues where my lists have blocked too much things either. I only needed to whitelist 16 urls after applying.


Other Sources I have found where I went to build my list.

https://www.github.developerdan.com/hosts/
(Helpful collection of ad and tracking list courtesy of u/lightswitch05 on reddit.)

https://firebog.net/
(Great blocklist website of various types of lists depending on what you want to block)

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mkb2091/blockconvert/master/output/domains.txt
(Giant list via u/PhantomSkyHunt on reddit that aggregates 100+ other lists, might block too much stuff though but fun to try out.)


Here are the lists I use currently tailored to hit everything from tracking to ads, to some adult domains. Currently, it’s blocking about 2,705,000 domains.
