1. Install a supported operating systemYou can run Pi-hole in a container, or deploy it directly to a supported operating system via our automated installer.D

I run pi-hole on a Debian VM since years for ad-blocking at DNS level. It's effective, low-maintenance and does its job in the back without getting noticed.
