Pi hole

So after the Minecraft server project with balena cloud 1 of things I tried I deployed the Minecraft server with balena hub 1 of the things I saw was pi hole. I looked in pi hole to pi hole with the pi hole website pi-hole.net, pi hole is software that you can install on your raspberry pi to turn it to a DNS as blocking device unlike other software when your device ask for a blacklisted domain it just won’t ask the router and I know this works because I tested out with speedtest.net and huaren.us. After running the command for the pi hole installation you will need to set some settings it will ask you if you want to use a eth0 (Ethernet) or wlan0 (wifi) choose for the next questions I just pressed ok for all of them but you can do it definitely, once it’s done to set it up on a iPad just go into settings right next to your wifi SSID press the I button then press DNS, Manual and enter your raspberry pi’s hostname.
