Block Porn Websites On Your Computer Without Using Any Software


Are you a parent?  Do you want to block your children from accessing porn websites? If your answer is Yes, you are at the right place....

Here are the best ways to block porn sites on your computer without any software:

1. Block Porn Websites By Editing Hosts File


Before going into the how to guide, let me tell you what is hosts file and how it works:
According to Wikipedia, "The hosts file is a computer file used by an operating system to map host names to IP addresses."
That is, the host file is the one that your computer uses before it scans external DNS servers for identifying the ip address of a domain name . Yes, the hosts file is your local dns!

Let's start blocking....

How To Block Porn Sites:


First locate your host file...If you are using windows, go to C > windows > System32 > Drivers > etc.

If you are using Mac, open Finder and, in Finder's menu bar, select Go > Go to Folder. In the box, type the following location and press Return.

/private/etc/hosts

Then copy the file named "hosts" to your desktop. Now you can edit the host file.

Double click on the hosts file and then select notepad, and click "OK"

Then enter domain names of porn websites along with your local host's ip address.

That is,

127.0.0.1            www.porn-website-name.com
127.0.0.1            www.domain-name-of-porn-site.com

Here is a huge list of porn websites you can add to your hosts file: Porn Websites List [Mediafire link]

After adding the websites to the hosts file, save the file. Then move the file to C > windows > System32 > Drivers > etc (replace the existing file).

Now, whenever you try to access porn websites, you will be redirected to an error page:

If you are using Mac computer, click on your "Apple"  menu and choose "System Preferences".

Then Double-Click on the "Network" icon.....

Go to the "TCP/IP" tab. If your computer is configured to use a dynamic IP address, (notice "Using DHCP" in the drop-down box next to "Configure"). This is where you can change your DNS settings, by entering the appropriate DNS servers in the "DNS Servers" box.

Enter DNS server addresses.
