I imagine uBlock/Adblock/etc are also DNS based.
Ok, next level. Pi-Hole vs dns malware ad blocking services out there?

You can add the same lists whatever plugin/service is using. If those use a host file or whatever you can subscribe the Pi-Hole to them. I think this site is where most of mine are from - https://firebog.net/

It essentially replaces the need for U-block, Adblock+, PrivacyBadger, etc

Only thing you'll want to do is not to do too aggressive of a blocking policy. Stuff like Lego.com was blocked when I added all the lists.

So maybe start with the ones that uBlock users by default (easyList and such) and then expand from there.

Haha, you don't have to use all of them! And you can always whitelist it if it doesn't work.

Keep in mind though if it's a subdomain (blah.website.com) it could be blocking ads that live on the subdomain.

So if you saw "ads.honda-tech.com" being blocked that means "honda-tech.com" is unblocked but the "ads" domain would be.
