Hi Ankit bro,
Nice And Helpful Article,
But I Want To Point Out That There Is An Easier Way To Block Websites.
Simple Open The ‘hosts’ File (located in %systemdrive%/windows/system32/drivers/etc) Using Notepad And After ‘127.0.0.1 localhost’, Enter A New Line, And Type ‘127.0.0.1 thewebsiteyouwanttoblock.com’, And Save The File.
You Can Enter It Again If You Want To Block Another Website.
This Is A Better Way As It Will Actually Block The Website In Your Whole Computer Rather Than Just A Browser. And Also Is Very Hard For The User To Unblock It As He Will Never Be Able To Guess That How Have We Blocked It!
