As of this time of writing, the current version of PiHole (5.0) supports adding custom DNS records, but not wildcard records. This makes it annoying if you run a bunch of different services within your LAN following a certain pattern.
Though since PiHole runs on top of
dnsmasq it is easy to add an additional configuration file to point a domain containing
example.com to a specific ip.
If you look in
/etc/dnsmasq.d/ there are the files
02-pihole-dhcp.conf. For our wildcard record, we’re going to add a new file
03-custom-dns.conf. Let’s have an example where we want to map
Once you save, restart the container or box and you will then have the wildcard record!
