pi-hole.net is a fun little project. I set it up as a VM and set my DHCP server to use it as the DNS server and whammo! insta-adblocking.
- Easy to install and setup. (Walk through the wizard to install, then update your DHCP server to use pi-hole as your DNS server.)
- Fast and small. (Well, it was designed to run on a Raspberry Pi.)
- Nice GUI and reports.
- Fun little weekend project.
- There is nothing bad, but I wish it would run under Alpine Linux. The Ubuntu server I spun up is terribly large.
pi-hole.net doesn’t block everything that uBlock does, but it does catch an extra 3% more ads than without uBlock (according to the sites I visit), and it will help all the tablets and phones on your network that don’t have uBlock.
