Custom blocklist support

NextDNS does not support the upload of custom blocklists, blacklist or whitelist for several reasons:

  • Hosting a slightly different version of a well known blocklist for each user would not be scalable.
  • We could not guarantee those custom blocklists are regularly updated and free of dangerous rules that could affect the stability of your browsing.
  • Many blocklists are not well suited for DNS and need to be verified by our team.

If you know a public and well maintained list that may be interesting for other users, you can open an issue on our github repository.

    Do you really need to add more blocklists beyond the default one ??

    It is not clear if there are duplicates between the different lists?

       Yeah the HaGeZi lists are better but more aggressive than the default NextDNS blocklist. To each his own, I like HaGeZi Multi Pro++ but that’s just me. I even add stuff to that list like Facebook, TikTok, Microsoft, and Google. 

      I also have hblock because that covers a lot of stuff too, but yes there are duplicates. I haven’t noticed any issues with having those 2 lists together.

    Competitors will likely offer custom block listing. I know AdGuard DNS is doing such. Same with ControldD.


    Please consider a work around to make custom lists. Perhaps a hosts list or a custom URL listing?

    Going to delete my account because you dont allow adding custom block lists like "https://v.firebog.net/hosts/lists.php?type=tick" and whitelists like "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/anudeepND/whitelist/master/domains/whitelist.txt".
