    Can someone confirm if they can access pandasecurity.com while using Quad9 please? I cannot unless I disconnect from my WiFi network. I am worried my Panda products are not getting their updates. I also run pi-hole on a raspi but I disabled blocking & that’s not it. Also no panda blocking in the pi-hole logs.

    Quad9 does seem to be blocking pandasecurity.com.

    Thank you, I sent them a DNS resolution “whitelisting” request from their contact us page. We shall see how long for them to reply. I use Panda Dome free which uses cloud technology but since no DNS resolutions to Panda, no protection, maybe, idk.

    Another reason why you should never implementing blocking at the DNS level. Stick with Cloudflare for a vanilla experience, use blocklists like Chome's inbuilt one or uBO. You know, lists you can easily disable or ignore if anything goes wrong.

    I received email from Quad9 support stating they are not blocking pandasecurity.com & magically it is now resolving. Thanks all!

    Must have been a "glitch". :)

    If you look at the founders of Quad9, you'll see you'll get this nonsense from time to time. They want to protect you, honest.
