it is free and it can become all in one replacement for ads and tracker blocker, blacklist/whitelist, privacy management, analytics, and better security.

must have apps for better internet experiences !

Probably the coolest DNS- and adblocking related thing I've come across, works really well in practice.

NextDNS limits the Free tier to 300,000 queries / month. The Pro tier allows unlimited queries, and it costs $1.99 / month. [https://nextdns.io/pricing](https://nextdns.io/pricing) [https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22749852](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22749852)

NextDNS can work as parental control software by blocking DNS queries, but does not block offline games and apps.

That's more than enough I haven't ever gotten to 300k queries after a while of using it.

The best Adblocker with many filters to custimize to your liking. The best of all, it runs on the Cloud so everything is automated your job is to sit back and enjoy a better internet.

A real life saver, I never have to worry about per device updates or things going wrong with Adguard as I did in the past. No apps, everything is up to data and managed, it even has better security compared to Enterprise DNS services, I don't know what else I can say.

I have been using this DNS server across iPad, iPhone, and iMac. The options are fine-grained, and I have tried the app and the configuration for iMac's settings. On the website you can create a free account and visit the Security tab to add different ad-blocking lists, including adguard, ez-list, fanboy's list, etc, and I like how configurable it is. Once I set them up, I noticed a slow-down of page loading, but it is tolerable. Just like Ublock Origin or adblock plus, you can turn it off when your email links fail to load, and you can remove adblockers or whitelist pages, which is very helpful. I still found sponsored posts on Facebook and Amazon, which I hate...but I have not discovered the list that blocks those.

    AdGuard is an Adblock browser extension not a DNS service.
