- I rented a VPS in the cloud and used Open VPN to configure my own VPN server.
- I installed the PiHole software onto the server to implement DNS level, network-wide advert and malware blocking.
How it Works
The VPN runs on a linux VPS and is cheaper and arguably more secure than the market equivalent. Connection speed is increased as around 15% of DNS queries are blocked and I can add my own DNS blacklists from any connected device.
