  • Adguard Home: How do I do split-horizon DNS? | 2021-06-15
    On Settings - Client Settings, add a Client and use CIDR range as the identifier, then enter a custom upstream for the client. Or alternatively, if you only have some custom entries, add them as DNS rewrite rules then disable it for one of the client settings.
  • Disallowed domains vs Blacklisting filters | 2021-06-11
    According to this GitHub issue and real life experience, it's pretty similar to "Block list".
  • Forward certain domains to a different DNS provider | 2021-06-07
    Sure, easy as a few command line entries. Check the documentation here to change the upstreams for specified domains:
  • ADGuard or Pihole? For anyone which tried both. | 2021-06-05

    Whilst your'e doing a redesign I'd like to mention that AdGuard Home (not just AdGuard, but AdGuard Home) is a marvelous alternative to pi-hole. It's a single binary instead of the clusterfuck of pi-hole and has improved functionality (DoH, DoT supported out of the box for both listening and forwarding; HTTPS support without needing a proxy; multi-user support; realtime API calls for emerging threat blocking if you want it (k-anonymised); quick toggles for basic blocks; single config file to backup; more modern interface; self-updating; accepts the much smaller and more efficient 'adblock' lists instead of shitty regex host files). There's no downside in the functionality compared to pihole and a lot of upside wrt additional features and its more moden architecture and UI.

    BTW since you use PiHole, I'd recommend checking out as it works beautifully and is super easy to manage. I really like the ability to manage granular per device configurations.
