Website blocking is very important specially at important places. At schools,offices and other corporate places people tend to waste their time on social networking websites, emails and other numerous websites. To prevent this from happening, you can block the websites without any software just by doing these few steps in your LAN configuration.
Here are the Steps:
1] Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
2] Find the file named “HOSTS”
3] Open the file in Notepad
4] Under “127.0.0.1 localhost” Add 127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwantblocked.com , and that site will be blocked and that too using any software.
5] It’s done. That website cannot be opened again.
Following message will appear on the website.
~~~~www.websiteblocked.com is blocked.
If you want to add another website in the list simply add “1″ to the last number in the internal ip (127.0.0.2) and repeat the above steps.
IE: 127.0.0.3 www.website1.com
Like this you can block many websites just by adding numbers in the internal IP. Hope you got the everything.
