Said about Technitium DNS Server as an alternative
Works exactly as pihole, very lightweight, easy to use. But, better than pihole IMO because it does not has to be installed on another device dedicated to it, you can install it on the same computer that is doing the requests. Less community than pihole but the dev is very reactive, and it is quite easy to use !
Its a DNS+DHCP server setup that works for most small to medium networks.
I works like Pi-hole, as it filters DNS requests. It cannot remove ads embedded in HTTPS connections. Therefore you will still need Adblock etc.
