Can someone please provide examples that show the difference in blocking using exact and wildcard/regex?
I have been doing this by typing “adservice.google.com” in the search bar on the pihole blacklist page and then I click on wildcard or regex but I am not sure if this way is even correct.
What if I want to block anything that has “adservice.google.com” in it? in other words, “adservice.google.com” could be at the beginning, or in the middle or at the end of the domain that I am trying to block?
What if I want to block a domain that has a specific word but that word could be at the beginning of the domain or middle or at the end?
For example, I wand to block the word “hsd1” but the domains that could have this word might have it at the beginning, middle or end
