This list contains our public facing Response Policy Zone

Here you can see our RPZ driven Response Policy Zones to be used in your DNS Firewall or by simply switch your DNS Client setting to point to our Firewall DNS server.

The primary zone-file is hosted in the

This RPZ zone contains a mix of the following records from rMATRIX except from bait sites, porno sites and SafeSearch.

Since the release of new zones in our Response policy zones (RPZ) driven DNS Firewall, there will be fewer submissions to this RPZ zone.

We are slowly but steady mowing zones from this master zone and into the sub categorized DNS Firewall zone as described below. However, some might stay in this master zone to reduce the number of overlapping and dublets, as some records simply are to broadly mapped in to many categories.

This is the RPZ Firewall zone which hosts all our Adult and Porno related domains that have been reported. You can also find reported Adult Contents at[]=NSFW%20Adult%20Material and GitHub.

You will find the master submit/issue board for this zone on Github The reason we have decided to use GH for this particular zone, is it's share size of data amount there will be collected vs our limited resources as a free and open project.
The optimal external board for these kinds of submissions would of-curse had been to use Gitlab, but as there system prevent users from submitting such data without being forced to let them track you through Google's fucked up tracking mechanism, we have decided to let this happens on GH, as you with ex. uBlock origin + EasyList & co. is able to prevent the worst tracking from Microsoft

This zone is not our primary concern and as a result the default weight for maintaining this record is therefore limited.

The zone is hosting all records from the sharked domains. The purpose with this category is to prevent users from visiting hijacked domains owned by domain pirates.

The zone includes both the domain pirates and the pirated domains.

A domain pirate is often a company who believe they can generate money on stealing domains from people or minor projects who have forgotten or even worth, shortly been out of money, to renew there domain, for then to bee meet by a claim in the 1000's of bucks to get there domain released.
The other shitty thing about these internet pirates, is they are holding domains that ordinary should be released back into the public for anyone to use.
In short, these pirates is acting against the founding father idea of a free and open internet for spreeding knowledge across the borders to the people by the people in a free and DEMOCRATIC fashion.

This DNS Firewall zone was released 30. April 2020. saw the light of the day at 1 of May 2020, this zone is set up to serve our data from tracking source list.

The records in this zone is added to cover the Trackware and those who offer these shameless resources.

The Typo Squatting zone is purely based on source/typosquatting/

The zone is intended to enable SafeSearch in your browser by default by redirecting the ordinary DNS response into a predefined IP-address by search providers like or for on the tor-network .onion

These records is placed outside the default source folder in safesearch/.

This list have it's very own life, as this is a very very tricky one to maintain.

The reason for that is, it have to balance between what is going on with a domain that for several reasons might be blacklisted on some lists but not on others. It can also be that a domain in general do 99,9% right, but because of it's nature of user based submissions, could do a lot of evil.


Gitlab is 100% user submitted contents, but for the same reason also a widely target from bad guys to host there evil code. For that rightfully reason Gitlab often pop ups on list for malicious code. But as that would have huge influence on our workflow, it's of curse to be whitelisted.

However you are more than welcome to use it :)

Obtain DNS Firewall zones

To obtain a valid copy of our DNS zones you can use several tools. We will here introduce you into the best and most stable ways to do this in preferred order.

DNS Resolver

The best and most modern way to run a DNS Firewall is by using a good and up to date DNSResolver and have that to automatically fetch our RPZ zones, when the SOA record changes.

The best and most modern DNS-resolvers to use RPZ zones is PowerDNS-Recursor and Bind 9

Next to these two very powerful DNS resolvers which fully support the use of Response Policy Zones we can recommend Unbound for which we do maintain ready to use zone files in our Unbound Zone files project.
It is worth mentioning that Unbound do work on supporting RPZ-Firewall, but it seems to have a very low priority. See this PullRequest at GH

Hosts files

We don't do much in this severely outdated method of blocking, as it is resources extensive, and is heavy adding loads to any systems using these.

Many times Windows completely fails to even start the network as the files are getting to big with to many records. We have therefore decided to nearly completely dish all hosts files, but a few of them, is been kept alive do to the importance of the records in them.
The records within our few hosts formatted sources is cut down to those other project like StevenBlack/hosts leaves out by whitelisting these extreme intrusive records which only purpose is to intercept your privacy and track all of your movements.

A extreme scary example to this could be which clearly is part of Adobe's Adware network.

Response Policy Zones


If you only have access to IPv4 Network you'll have to switch the standard DNS port 53 to 5353
Please use DNS name


Getting the zones over IPv6 offers you to keep the default DNS server port 53
Please use DNS name

dig examples

To get the latest with dig you simply do:

For IPv4

dig axfr -p 5353

For IPv6

dig axfr -p 53
