The CryptoLab Blog

There are a few places online you can pick up a Pi-hole or you can build one yourself out of a Raspberry Pi. But if you don’t have the expertise or want to spend the time just buy one online and get it into your network. When you’re looking, make sure it’s not just a Raspberry Pi, but a Pi-hole. A Pi-hole runs on a Raspberry Pi, but a Raspberry Pi doesn’t run on a Pi-hole.

I offer a Pi-hole directly from CryptoLab. Order Here . Or you can look around on the net.

Your purchase will include:

1. Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (see hardware specs below)

A keyboard & mouse are not included. These are NOT required if you have the Pi-hole set to the correct IP address range. You only need to log in via your web browser to administer your Pi-hole. Information from the Pi-Hole site:

The Pi-hole® is a DNS sinkhole that protects your devices from unwanted content, without installing any client-side software.

  • Resolute: content is blocked in non-browser locations, such as ad-laden mobile apps and smart TVs
  • Responsive: seamlessly speeds up the feel of everyday browsing by caching DNS queries
  • Lightweight: runs smoothly with minimal hardware and software requirements
  • Robust: a command-line interface that is quality assured for interoperability
  • Insightful: a beautiful responsive Web Interface dashboard to view and control your Pi-hole
  • Versatile: can optionally function as a DHCP server, ensuring all your devices are protected automatically
  • Modern: blocks ads over both IPv4 and IPv6
  • Free: open-source software which helps ensure you are the sole person in control of your privacy
