I've tried a number of times on my , but it's always been a pretty crappy experience to be honest.

If you have a , here's how you can host Pi-Hole on there instead.

@kev I've been meaning to setup a forever but I never get around to it. I've already got my going. This makes things super easy.

@mike @kev PiHole is 100% the best thing I'm currently self-hosting. It's such a massive quality of life improvement for the modern ad-bloated web.

It also kills in-app ads on your phone, it's amazing.

@mike @kev you should be able to host it on a pi zero w and it should still perform well. That said, I moved to AdGuard Home for the single binary and tls/https support among other things. Tracking is pervasive on the internet and slows down your browsing experience. Should be purely faster to not load ads and trackers.

@Luke @mike a few people have mentioned adguard. I’ve heard lots of good things about it - need to take it for a spin.

@Luke It's not so much the performance I'm worried about but the extra redundant devices running around requiring support. The more I can consolidate the better. It's because I'm lazy.

@kev

@mike @kev yeah makes sense. No need for a pi if you already have another server running.
