Pi-hole is free, but powered by your donations.

Network-wide ad blocking via your own Linux hardware

No client-side software required

Two Installation Methods:

Traditional install:

curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash

Docker install:

docker pull pihole/pihole

 

Our code is completely open, but piping to bash can be dangerous.  For a safer install, review the code and then run the installer locally.

 Pi-hole is free, but powered by your donations.



Block Over 100,000 Ad-serving Domains

Known ad-serving domains are pulled from third party sources and compiled into one list.


Block Advertisements On Any Device

Network-level blocking allows you to block ads in non-traditional places such as mobile apps and smart TVs, regardless of hardware or OS.


Improve Overall Network Performance

Since ads are blocked before they are downloaded, your network will perform better.


Reduce Cellular Data Usage

Pair your Pi-hole with a VPN for on-the-go ad-blocking and save on data costs.


Monitor Performance And Statistics

The Web interface shows how many ads were blocked, a query log, and more.

Installation


1. INSTALL A SUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM

Pi-hole works on many Linux distros.

2. INSTALL PI-HOLE

Run the install command.

curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash

3. USE PI-HOLE AS YOUR DNS SERVER

Configure your router’s DHCP options to force clients to use Pi-hole as their DNS server, or manually configure each device​ to use the Pi-hole as their DNS server.
 
 
If your router doesn’t let you change these settings, you can use Pi-hole’s built in DHCP server to achieve the same effect.
 

4. BLOCK ADS EVERYWHERE

Since Pi-hole works at the DNS level, ads can be blocked on any device and even in apps.
