Block Websites In Windows Without Using Any Software



Hi! Today I'm posting about blocking websites manually in Windows without using any software, follow these steps: 
  • Go to the path C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts 
  • Open it in notepad or wordpad.
  • Below  "127.0.0.1 localhost" add 127.0.0.2 www.example.com 
  • Save it.
  • www.example.com is blocked now.
  • For every site which you want to block, just add site name after 127.0.0.1 as

    127.0.0.1 www.abcd.com
    127.0.0.1 www.xy.com
