echo "FTLDNS" | sudo tee /etc/pihole/ftlbranch
pihole checkout core FTLDNS
pihole checkout web FTLDNS
You can also checkout the

We’ll flair your user on Discourse or Reddit as a Patron of Pi-hole and you have our thanks.

$15/month Mug-of-the-month Club

We have around 300 custom-made, 2 inch Pi-hole coins, sequenced and everything. They are dual-sided, colored and look very nice. If these sell out, we could possibly do a coin-of-the-month club as well. But for now, there is only one style coin available.
The proceeds from selling these coins will go towards our fundraising goal.
One-time funding goal for developing full time, faster updates, faster bug fixes, quicker support response times, more features, more platforms natively supported…
