At the beginning of October 2021 Pi-hole released version 5.5 of their product and today, less than a month later, another version 5.6 was released to the public which you can install for free on your Synology NAS using my handy guide. Pi-hole is a Linux network-level advertisement and Internet tracker blocking application which acts as a DNS sinkhole, and optionally a DHCP server, intended for use on a private network.
Because Pi-hole blocks domains at the network level, it is able to block advertisements, such as banner advertisements on a webpage, but it can also block advertisements in unconventional locations, such as on Android, iOS and smart TVs. No one likes to feel like they’re just another part of some secret algorithm, another cog in the advertising wheel. This is why mariushosting doesn’t have ADS, COOKIES, POP-UPs, Amazon AFFILATE LINKS or any TRACKING CODE on it. You are 100% safe when you visit mariushosting.
