[UPDATE] The best blocking lists for the Pi-Hole + Alternative DNS servers 2019

blacklisting
#35

Hi, I’m using anudeepND’s whitelist. Thanks for that!
For updating the whitelist.txt should I run sudo ./referral.sh or sudo ./whitelist.sh? Sorry, it’s not clear to me.

It’s sudo ./whitelist.sh.
That actually depends, if you also installed the referral whitelist, that used to un-break some websites and services, by allowing some trackers/ads domains.
In that case, if you’ve installed that one, do sudo ./referral.sh too.

whitelist.txt works fine for most of the time. Beware that referral-list.txt contains advertising domains and trackers

I would like to suggest the FDN alternative DNS too.
It’s the ones from the French Data Network association, being an FAI mainly volunteer and selfless for Internet freedom.
But i guess you would surely take a closer look at that on their website anyway.

Hi guys,
Thank you for mentioning my project: phishing.army

It’s been a month since I launched the project and daily more than 2 thousand users download the list.

For now only positive feedback! I’m happy!

Hi! Firstly, thanks for you blocking and white lists. Was just wondering, I tried downloading the whitelist, but it keeps saying the url is forbidden. Have you taken it offline?

Will it become slower when using more blocking entries ?

It will a nice option to see witch files are being used or hit so you can clean up your config.

Would be better with static IP’s http://128.199.249.212/allhosts
I disable the cloud pihole with 127.0.01 under custom to avoid feed back when server is young.

These are the updated lists that I use today, I have an Orange Pi One with these lists the use of RAM does not exceed more than 25% and blocking approx. 40-50% nd false positives are very rare

I am blocked from adding your link ‘Status: Connection Refused’ I was doing some updates and I had to re-add a couple of times am I just out of luck and have to wait a week?

If you run into the max downloads per day (this should never happen unless you’re doing something out of the ordinary). You can reset the download counter yourself by opening the link in your browser (use the same connection your pi-hole uses) and solving a reCaptcha.

Also, download counts reset each update (at least once every 24 hours) so waiting a day also works.

I’ve reset it manually now, so it should work for you now, without having to do any of the above. :wink:
