To disable ad-blocking in eOS, you need to open the browser, click on the gear icon, and set the preferences to allow ads.

However, this isn't the kind of fidelity that you're looking for. In Epiphany, the eOS default browser, ad-blocking is binary, meaning that it is either on or it is off. You can't disable it for individual sites while keeping it enabled for other sites.

Your most realistic solution is to install another mainstream browser, such as Firefox or Chrome. Then, install an ad-blocking extension - such as uBlock Origin. With that extension, you can visit the site, click on the extension in the browser's notification area, and disable ad-blocking for individual sites.

There are other browsers (such as Vivaldi, Brave, or Opera) that have built-in ad-blocking. In each of those cases, you also have the fidelity to disable blocking on a per-site basis.
