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

Is the list down? Recently updated and saw this when it failed.

[i] Target: dbl.oisd.nl ()
[✗] Status: Connection Refused
[✗] List download failed: no cached list available

You will need to put https:// in front of that domain for Pi-Hole to load the list.

Weird, I didn’t catch that… I have had the list loaded for months now and after the latest pihole update it must have removed it… I just noticed in the terminal it failed so I went to investigate.

It is listed with the right URL let me check if it’s still failing

Edit: it’s working again must have just been a fluke, thanks for the help!

Great job man! Thanks a lot!

Do you still update this post? What’s about localized list (FR for example)?

Right now, in addition to yours, I use those lists:

##FR

Thanks again for your work. :slight_smile:

Here you have a collection of letters to Pi-Hole, I collected from various websites.

Thnx for this list!

I’m looking forward to see some more updates :smiley:

Can I Just put " https://github.com/kry008/PI-HOLE-AD-LIST-POLSKA/blob/master/lista.txt" into the Pi-hole Block list via web interface, or do I need to add each each Block list URL listed found in “lista.txt” separately?

I ask because the link is a “list of Block lists”. Will PI-hole block these urls or will it ingest all of the listed block lists respective txts ?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No.

Yes.

Note that if you get the raw version of the link you posted, you can copy and paste all the URL’s to your clipboard and paste the lot into the blocklist entry page on the web GUI at once - they don’t have to go individually. But, you can’t just put in the URL of the group of lists.

Edit - so, I did just those steps and there are many lists in that file that are no longer available. If you load the lists that do exist, you end up with 4,820,987 domains on blocklist, which seems a bit over the top. Plus, some of the lists are not properly formatted for Pi-Hole and contain entries like this (none of which are valid domains):

${tomcat.server}
(^|\.)adform\.net$
(^|\.)adocean\.(pl)$
(^|\.)adsbtrack\.com$
(^|\.)adserver\.snapads\.com$
(^|\.)audienceinsights\.net$
(^|\.)behavioralengine\.com$
(^|\.)clickmatic\.pl$
(^|\.)doubleclick\.(com)$
(^|\.)gemius\.(com|pl)$

Use this batch of lists at your own peril.

This URL is no longer working.
