Are there websites that you want to block because they spread viruses, contain explicit content, or steal your personal data? Though you can avoid these websites yourself, this may not be true for other people who use your device. In such cases, you might want to consider blocking websites on all browsers regardless of the time of day.

The method I’m about to teach you only requires simple modifications to the Windows hosts file. It is free and very easy to follow. It will not also require you to download or install any software. 


Blocking Websites on Your PC:


Step 1: Run Notepad as administrator. Click File menu > Open > Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.


Note: It is very important to open Notepad as administrator in order to save the file later successfully. 

You will see "No items match your search." Don't worry, it happens all the time. 



Change the file type to "All Files (*.*)" then choose hosts file.


Step 2: Create a new line by pressing Enter at the end of the last line. Type 127.0.0.1 (space) www.blockthiswebsite.com

Example:

127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com 



Step 3: Repeat the steps above to block other websites. You can add as many websites as you can but remember to create a new line for each website. One line, one website. 

One your done, Close the hosts file and click Save.  



Step 4: Restart your computer for the changes to take effect. 

Having trouble saving the file? A Save As window keeps on popping up upon saving the file? This means that you fail to run Notepad as administrator



If this happens to you, click Cancel and Close the hosts file. Run Notepad as administrator and repeat Steps 2 to 4.
