    Main guy at NextDNS replied to this ONE YEAR ago, and still nothing has been done. Really poor.

    I also would appreciate the ability to customize the blockpage. Just an option like 鈥渉ide logo鈥 would be amazing, to avoid users from discovering the source of the blockage.

    Also adding support / request for ability to allow blocked pages to be bypassed by the end user from the block page. ie a 鈥榮oft warn page鈥 instead / as well as a 鈥榟ard block page鈥.
     

    Appreciate that not all users would want this, but there鈥檚 always a balance between security/privacy and usability. Each NextDNS user will have their own needs - some will be happy with a 鈥榮peed bump鈥 / warn approach which simply alerts the end user that the site is doing X or Y, and allow the end user discretion to continue.

     Ideally this would be configurable based on the type of block. For me, if it鈥檚 blocked due to the explicit deny list then I probably want to force block that. But if it鈥檚 just blocking a Google Shopping Ad or similar I鈥檓 probably ok with the end user going ahead if they can鈥檛 find another way to access the content they need.

    UBlock Origin has a flow which works well for the above - of course, that鈥檚 working at the browser level as opposed to DNS, so I鈥檓 not suggesting this makes it easy for NextDNS to implement, just pointing to a user experience that illustrates this type of feature in action.

     

    thanks!

     

    The ability to customise and remove NextDNS logo/branding also makes sense for those using the paid service in organisations to make circumventing slightly more onerous.

    Instead of just custom the logo or text let us choose how the block page behaves.

    I like what clean browsing did, they provide 4 options.
    1. return NXDOMAIN
    2. return their own block page
    3. redirect to an IP
    4. redirect to the block page URL

    with the option to redirect to an IP and redirect to a URL, we have unlimited options on how can we customize our own block page instead of just changing the logo or text.

    It would be great to be all to redirect all blocked traffic to your own webserver using your own cert.

    This would be much like pixelserv where you provide your own server.  This should be extremely easy to program rather than building the whole thing yourself - it would be completely customizable.

    I literally created an account on this forum just now for the sole purpose of upvoting this topic. Any kind of customization of the blocked screen would be very much appreciated as a paid feature, and I honestly believe they would gain subscribers for implementing it.

    Block page customization, even a bare minimum of a logo to start, is a critical feature necessary to put the nail in Cisco鈥檚 coffin - RIP Umbrella 馃.

    Please make this a reality in 2023. It鈥檚 literally the linchpin between signing a business plan or not.

    Happy New Year Next DNS Team.  Please can I add my voice to this.  I would like to add my logo, some text, and the ability to add a button to raise a ticket to unblock the webpage.

    Any news on this? It's clearly a feature people want.
