Maybe you could try setting up a PiHole Pi-hole – Network-wide Ad Blocking, and add the offending address to the blacklist? Or just add the redirect to the hosts file on the system hosting PiHole (PiHole reads the local hosts file and adds entries to it's DNS database)?

There's instructions on how to install PiHole inside a docker instance, if you want to go that route.

Plus, if you can modify your DHCP server to point to the PiHole for DNS, than every system on your local net gets the ad-blocking goodness. Only downside (?) I've encountered is that PiHole does block google ad services, too, so you can't click on any "sponsored" google link, or the "Shopping" links when doing a google search. Which is occasionally annoying. You can find instructions on how to allow ad services through the PiHole, but I think doing so will allow a number of, possibly unwanted, other ad services through as well
