A robust collection of commonly white listed websites borrowed from various sources including Pi-Hole subreddit, Pi-Hole forum, Pi-Hole github repository and more! Add these domains to your Pi-Hole setup by running a script or manually and make your setup trouble-free!

Main features:

Description

referral-sites.txt
People who use services like Slickdeals and Fatwallet needs a few sites (most of them are ads) to be whitelisted to work properly. This file contains some analytics and ad serving sites, if you don't know what these services are stay away from this list.
