There can be any number of reasons for you to want to block a particular website.
It might be a known malicious site or a website with pages containing inappropriate material.
Whatever the reason, you can block a website (or group of websites) with just a few mouse clicks using the built in functions of your browser.
Some browsers, however, such as Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, have built-in features to do just that, while others, such as Mozilla Firefox, require an additional tool.

Start the browser and click the "Tools" menu option.
Select "Internet Options," click the "Privacy" tab then "Sites."

Type the website URL in the "Address of website" box and click "Block" in the "Per Site Privacy Actions" window.
Click "OK" and then "OK" again to save the new settings.

Google Chrome

Start the browser and click the wrench icon in the top right corner of the window.

Select "Tools" and click "Under the Hood."
Select "Change Proxy Settings," click "Security" tab and double-click the "Restricted Sites" icon.
Click "Sites," type in the website URL and click "Add."
Close all windows.

Discreetly Block a Website
If you find a friend, co-worker or your child has visited websites that cause problems on your computer, such as pop-up ads, viruses or just slowing down your computer, you will want to block those sites so they can't be accessed.
Browsers come equipped with privacy or security settings that allow you to block websites, but they don't always work well and are easy to undo.
Instead, find your computer's Host file and add the offending websites to that file.
Those sites will be blocked and, if you make the file password inaccessible, others who use your computer won't be able to undo the changes you have made.

Click "Start" in the lower left-hand corner of your computer screen, or click on the Windows emblem.
Choose "All Programs," "Accessories," then "Command Prompt."
A screen will appear.
Type "notepad C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts" where the cursor is located, without the quotation marks.
Don't move the cursor first, just start typing.
The Host file will open in a Notepad screen.


Look for the line that says: "127.0.0.1 localhost," without the quotation marks. Under that line, enter the IP address and the name of the website you wish to block, separated by at least one space. If you wish to block more than one website, list each on an individual line.
For instance, if you wanted to block Facebook, you would type on a single line:
69.63.184.142 www.facebook.com


Save the file after you have added all the websites you wish to block.
After saving it, close the file and close the command prompt screen.

Locating IP Addresses

Use the Ping command to find out the IP address of a website. On the lower left-hand corner of your screen, click on "Start." Choose "All Programs." Select "Accessories." Choose "Command Prompt."


Type "ping www.food.com" without the quotation marks.
Press the "Enter" key. A list of IP addresses will appear for that website.
High-traffic websites such as Facebook will often have a range of IP addresses.
Copy and paste the IP addresses to a separate page, such as Notepad, and save them.


Go back to the command prompt and type in the command described above for locating the Host file.
Enter each IP address and the name of the website on a separate line.
If you have six IP addresses for one site, for instance, you'll have a different IP address but the same website URL on each line.

How to unblock a normal website getting blocked in fortigate 110C


it might be blocking it on ip address for an offending website and the other normal education website may be on the same ip address. may need to alter the ip address being blocked it may be based only on the network address for the banned web site rather than using a full host address. as an example in laymans terms say banned site was as a made up ip address 103.34.50.1 and say as an example the other web site was 103.34.50.2 and your firewall blocks 103.34.50.?? this means block ip address 103.34.50.0 thru to 103.34.50.254 this is what I meant by a network address usually denoted as 103.34.50.0 the 0 is the network identifier

Site is blocked


You\'ll find many products for blocking websites.

Some work for the general user who wants to block spammers
while others are for parents who want to block harmful content from their
children.

Both types of products vary in price and sometimes lead to
more headaches by blocking the content you do want to see.

Before you take that step, try these ideas for blocking
websites easily and for free.



Allow Internet Explorer to block websites by going to "Internet
Options" under "Tools."


Select the "Content" button and go to
"Content Advisor."

Enable Content Advisor by clicking the button and adding a
supervisor\'s password.


If you don\'t use a password, anyone can go into Internet
Explorer and unblock websites.

Content Advisor allows you to use settings in four areas:
ratings, approved sites, general and advanced.


Focus on "ratings" and "approved sites"
to block websites.








Adjust the slider under ratings for language, nudity,
and violence.


You have five choices that range from "None" to
"Explicit."

The ratings option only affects some pages with many
websites slipping under the radar.


Go to the next step to block specific websites from Content
Advisor.




Click on the "Approved Sites" tab to add a
website.


Click "Never" to block the website.

Select "OK."




Edit host files when using the Content Advisor isn\'t
enough.


Your host files stores information that includes files to
block. Click "Start" and "Run."

Type in the following to get to the host commands from
Windows XP: C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts.




Scroll to the bottom of the notepad window where you
should find the line "127.0.0.1."


Push your enter key and type in the block command of
127.0.0.1 followed by the website.

For example, to block MySpace, you would type 127.0.0.1
myspace.com.




Add additional websites to block by adding one number to
the last number in the internal ip before the website address.

For example, the next one would be 127.0.02.

When you are finished, save the file and exit.

Login to your DLink router through your web browser. Click the advanced tab.

How do you get on a blocked website?


I guess you use a wireless network in your school or any institution where they block all the websites of social networking and other sites. You can unblock such sites by using proxy. There are many proxy websites on the net. Just search for "online proxies" in google and go to a proxy site and type the url of the website that is blocked..You can access the blocked websites. There are also some softwares namely Ultrasurf .You can download it from here http://www.ultrareach.com/ .This one is useful.
