How to Block Websites from your Computer without using any Software.

Step 1: Open “Run” from the start menu, Just copy paste the following path and hit ENTER.

notepad c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Step 2: When this hosts file is opened in Notepad, at the end of the file you will see something like “ localhost”.

Step 3: Under “ localhost” just add another website URL that you want to block.

For Example:- localhost www.google.com www.Yahoo.com

Step 4: Make sure every time you add another website, the last digit of the address 127.0.0.x should not be the same.

Save the file and exit.
So, here you go.
Restart your browser if it is opened and changes will take place immediately.
You can block as many websites as you like with the above technique.
If you want to remove the ban later, open the same file as mentioned in Step 1 and delete the above lines.
