The Web interface shows how many ads were blocked, a query log, and more.
Domains can be whitelisted and blacklisted using either the web interface or the command line.
The settings page lets you control and configure your Pi-hole.
Pi-hole ships with a built-in DHCP server. This allows you to let your network devices use Pi-hole as their DNS server if your router does not let you adjust the DHCP options.

Best way to block ads/telemetry from any app that isn't a web browser, and for web browsers is an excellent complement to uBlock Origin.

I'm a long term pi-hole user and was pretty happy with it. But I had constant discussions with my family as websites where not working properly and to much overblocking was taking place.

Now I've moved from pi-hole to eBlocker.org - also open source and free for Raspi. Much easier to use and more focus on privacy. The biggest advantage: eBlocker blocks URL pattern - not just full domains - and comes with VPN/Tor and lot's of cloaking/privacy tech. But the best for me: No more family complains, no individual settings, no support. They can just handle it themself. Happy wife, happy life ;-)

It's fantastic in reducing ads on websites while not being intrusive and running discretely in the background.

It's free but I donate to the project. It takes very little resources to run and can be applied via DHCP in your router to protect all of your connected devices. Can do local caching to help speed up your most visited websites and great for seeing whats going on in your network. Great Application!
