Domain Blacklist

by on Oct.17, 2017, under Posts

Currently, I’ve been using Pi-hole as a means of blocking ads, malicious websites, and other undesirable things in my own personal network. My Pi-hole setup is blocking 1,702,945 domains, so it can be a way of saving bandwidth and helping fellow network users on my network avoid known blacklisted malicious websites. Granted, it is not perfect and it will always be a game of cat and mouse, especially with methods like this, when it comes to blocking domains. But if you’re looking for a small weekend project for your home or small office, I strongly recommend looking into Pi-hole. It’s a better means of blocking in my opinion than the hosts file method especially with fixed location desktop computers (although, on a side note you could VPN into your network with mobile devices and still use your own personal Pi-hole). With that being said, I’m hosting another huge blacklist of domains/IPs on my google drive, in two formats. One only has the hosts, and the other has a hosts file format (i.e.

HostsOnly (28.1 MB) – sha1sum – 34a86bcb2b4dba37818fd7de39252b342b9c2f6d

HostsLoopback (44.4 MB) – sha1sum – e3bdad79c32d7eed3e65c49df5788820e675b78d
