There are many threats on the Internet. And not only the user data of adult people are at risk. Often, prohibited content becomes available to children. And without a doubt, it can negatively affect their psyche or mental abilities. Therefore, it’ll be useful to learn how a website is blocked.

How to block a website

There are many ways in which you can block individual websites. Two methods that are most popular will be considered below.


The Internet traffic always passes through the DNS server. Users can also use other services/sources, for example, free public ones. Some of them have a gratuitous filtration system. That’s why there is no strong overload of the PC by sites and information content.

But it’s impossible to selectively block a resource using this method. By implementing it, you can easily block pornsites or websites with potential threats. To do this, you just need to specify the appropriate addresses in the properties. You can also use RFID blocking.

There are also alternative ways for blocking:

  • For Yandex: main, or additional (with 2 on the end). It helps to get rid of fraudulent attacks and operations.
  • For Semantics: main, and there’s a substitution for 194 for the additional. It helps to reduce the risks of fraudulent attacks.

It’s worth noting that, for blocking online cinemas and other programs with video content, one can use a VPN for Netflix.

Via browser

There are many various functions in modern browsers, but blocking is quite rare. To solve this task, it’s recommended to additionally use Block Site. Such extensions operate on a simple principle by adding a blocking option through the context menu. VPN proxy can also be used.
