We know the Web interface has been very slow when people’s query logs get too large, so we are here to preview something that addresses this and we are branding it FTL (Faster Than Light) to fit with the theme of Pi-hole and also to indicate how much better it performs over PHP.
This wasn’t much a problem in the early days of Pi-hole because the Web interface was pretty basic and the ad lists were reasonably small. Now that users can add their own block lists and are using Pi-hole in enterprise environments, the quantity of daily queries people are generating has increased.

It is possible to use your Pi-hole remotely for ad-blocking on-the-go. We don’t have a guide on this process for several reasons, which you will read about below.
It’s been challenging to keep up because the project is growing larger then any of us ever imagined. And because each member of the Pi-hole dev team has a full-time job; we just work on this project in our free time, so it’s your donations that keep us motivated.
