Why should I use pi-dns.com?
We se pi-dns as a complement to web browser ad blockers.
Most of us use some form of ad blocker in our web browser. These can only block ads that you receive while using the web browser to brows the web. What about windows telemetry? Smart home (IoT) device telemetry? Ads in smartphone apps? Ad blocking for your entire network? This is where pi-dns can help. By setting your router or your devices to use our dns servers, ads and telemetry will automatically be blocked!
What do pi-dns do differently?
You’ve probably seen a few other public ad blocking DNS servers running pi-hole. I won’t drop any names but I’ve seen a few and all of them talk about how they respect the users privacy but when you inspect how the pi-holes are set-up, you see something completely different.
Note that we run on privacy_level 3. This means that we do not store any long-term data in the sqlite database that ships with pi-hole. All our logs are automatically purged at midnight every day.
Check this parameter on all other public pi-hole’s you find and you’ll notice that they run their pi-holes with privacy_level 0. This mean that all your private dns queries will be stored in the persistent database on the pi-hole server! This can of course be deleted from disk as well but why even save the queries in the database if you respect the user’s privacy?
Pi-dns.com only store your data for at most 24h since all logs are automatically purged at midnight every day!
Depending on the interest, we might open up new servers in new locations closer to you! What do you say? Where would you like to see a new server?
