Nowadays children are addicted to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc. This has negatively affected their performance in school. If you want your children not to open a particular website, you can easily block that site. Do the following to block websites that you don’t want anyone to access on your computer.
- Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
- Find the file named “HOSTS”
- Open it in notepad
- Under “127.0.0.1 localhost” add 127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwantblocked.com.
Ex:- If you want to block Facebook then type 127.0.0.2 www.facebook.com. Then www.Facebook.com will no longer be accessible.
