Is it possible to see or get the specific IP address of an ad or a domain in pi-hole? Is it possible to see it in the query log?
No in the query log, but you can use "Tools/Tail pihole.log" to see the actual IP a domain resolves to.
You can also search for the domain name in file /var/log/pihole.log.
Or you can query Google DNS @184.108.40.206 if suspect the domein is on the adlists and being blocked by Pi-hole:
pi@ph5b:~ $ nslookup flurry.com localhost Server: localhost Address: ::1#53 Name: flurry.com Address: 0.0.0.0 Name: flurry.com Address: ::
pi@ph5b:~ $ nslookup flurry.com 220.127.116.11 Server: 18.104.22.168 Address: 22.214.171.124#53 Non-authoritative answer: Name: flurry.com Address: 126.96.36.199 Name: flurry.com Address: 188.8.131.52 Name: flurry.com Address: 184.108.40.206
So it is possible for a domain. How about for the ads that pi hole blocks, is it possible too? Thank you for your response good sir!
That's the same, really.
As any DNS filter, Pi-hole is able to block ads by blocking the domain that ads are delivered from.
For that same reason, DNS filters cannot block ads that are delivered via the same domain as its content without blocking that content also.
A prime example for such a site would be YouTube.
