How to Install Pi-Hole on Your Synology NAS – Marius Hosting
Pi-Hole is a Linux network-level advertisement and Internet tracker blocking application which acts as a DNS sinkhole (and, optionally, a DHCP server), intended for use on a private network. What is a DNS sinkhole? A DNS sinkhole, also known as a sinkhole server, Internet sinkhole, or Blackhole DNS is a DNS server that gives out false information, to prevent the use of a domain name. It is designed for use on embedded devices with network capability, such as the Raspberry Pi, but it can be used on other machines running Linux like Synology Nas and cloud implementations. Pi-Hole has the ability to block traditional website adverts as well as adverts in unconventional places, such as smart TVs and mobile operating system adverts.

I’m not a fan of applications like Pi-hole because Ad blocking software is leading to ‘the slow death of niches’ like my website. Ad blockers are white flagging Google, Amazon, Facebook and other Internet giants, but what about the small and medium publishers whose livelihood depends on ad revenues? Where is the morality in this? Anyway, see below my step by step guide on how to install Pi-Hole on your Synology NAS device.

Just doesn’t feel good
> Ad blockers come with an important asterisk: while they do benefit a ton of people in major ways, they also hurt some, including many who don’t deserve the hit.

​> I got to engage the technical part of my brain and make something great that doesn’t hurt anyone, with no asterisks or qualifications.
> That’s my peace.
