Cloudflared DNS over HTTPS

Build Status Codacy Badge License Docker Pulls Contributions welcome

A docker container which runs the cloudflared proxy-dns at port 54 based on alpine with some parameters to enable DNS over HTTPS proxy for pi-hole based on tutorials from Oliver Hough and Scott Helme

Getting Started

Replace amd64 most normal PC's with arm64 or arm for RaspberryPi, BananaPi etc.

Start with Port 54 (Default Port is 53!) for testing purposes

Port 54 on host network so every device on the network can reach the Proxy

docker run -it --rm --name cloudflared --net host knight/cloudflared-dns:amd64

dig @IP_OF_HOST -p 54

If you stop this container it will remove itself!

Start with Default Port 53

You can set up this Host to be a normal DNS resolver. You can put the Host IP into every client like with or or inside your router so you do not need to do it manually.

Examples: Lifewire, The Verge

docker run -d --name cloudflared --restart=always -p 53:54/udp knight/cloudflared-dns:amd64

Pi-hole®: (A black hole for Internet advertisements)

Install Docker curl | sudo bash and Pi-hole

docker run -d --name cloudflared -p --restart=always knight/cloudflared-dns:amd64

Enter IP into Custom 1 (IPv4) within the Pi-Hole Admin Page


You can see the build, it's status and the push to Docker Hub on Travis-CI I run it every week so that there is no bug in it from the upstream apline image.

You want to contribute? Awesome Badges

Issues, Pull Requests and Wiki additions are very welcome 😊


I wrote some tests in a goss.yaml file which can be executed by dgoss
