Block Websites without a Software

block a website
It’s an old trick that I’m using if I want to block a website I manage a computer shop before and most of the time there are restricted website that I want to block.  It’s also one of the troubleshooting tools that I'm using when It comes to selective browsing here’s the trick.
 1 Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
 2 Find the file named "HOSTS"
 3 Open it in notepad
 4 Under " localhost" Add

www.nameofsite.com , and that site will no longer be accessible. localhost www.nameofsite.com
 For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip ( and then add like before. Example: www.websitesoftware.com www.blockwebsoftware.com www.blockwebsitesnosoftware.com
 That’s a simple trick that you can do on to your computer no need to run a software or firewall. By the way the Host trick is working on Windows Vista and old version
