    Adhole.org is shutting down

    After almost 5 years, it’s time to say goodbye; Adhole.org is shutting down. Time wise it has become too much of a burden for me to continue.

    What started as a small single-node Pi-hole instance on a public VPS back in 2017, grew out to become a worldwide multi-node adblocking DNS network with thousands of concurrent users around the globe… but that also meant more server load, which meant upgrading servers, more incident (reports) and as such more work. In other words; the project has become a victim of its own success. The current setup is pestered with continuous stability issues along with (recently introduced) certificate issues and repeatedly changing IP addresses. And since no-one likes an unstable DNS, because as all sysadmins know; ‘it’s always DNS’, I decided to pull the plug…
