Hey everyone! I am running a usability experiment to see how naive it might be to provide everyday users the ability to browse the internet in a safer manner. To accomplish this I am running a public DNS server that is running Pi-Hole with extended definitions. This experiment ties in directly with the guide im currently writing here: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/guide-global-network-dns-blacklisting-pi-hole.233545/ To do this, I am hosting a small virtual server on Digital Ocean. I am using my own funds to give it a shot. The Pi-Hole software is free and currently we are here with functionality. I run some extra definition lists on the PI which caches and remembers its DNS requests, whenever the PI doesnt know something I take this a step further and the forward addresses point to OpenDNS family safe servers. Which according to openDNS block the following: The goal of this is simple. Can I or another organization or entity use free products to provide a safer internet to users without charging them a ludicrous amount of money? How effective is it? Can it be done at a low or no cost? To answer these questions I would like to invite feedback on the project if you decide to join. I am looking for the following. Response time ok false positives does this inhibit your browsing habits within reason? Here are some examples of what this blocks. Telemetry malware domains ad domains pornographic and other none PG domains DNS in itself isnt a perfect system, but I would REALLY like to understand how feasible a project like this could be. If you would like to join the DNS server IP in question is this. 188.8.131.52 (I currently only route IPV4) I DO NOT keep any private or identifying information.
