Getting Started

Pi-hole is easy to setup using our intelligent installer. Once you are set up, just use Pi-hole as your DNS server and ads will immediately be blocked--no additional client-side software needed!

1. Install a supported operating system

Pi-hole works on many Linux distros.

2. Install Pi-hole

Run the install command.

3. Use Pi-hole as your DNS server

Configure your router’s DHCP options to force clients to use Pi-hole as their DNS server, or manually configure each device​ to use the Pi-hole as their DNS server.

4. Block ads everywhere

Since Pi-hole works at the DNS level, ads can be blocked in non-traditional places such as ad-support mobile apps and smart TVs.
