Best way to Block a Website

Whats the best way to completely block a Website in it's entirety?

More specifically, I want to completely block a PC from accessing Facebook, but only that site.

Hello Jessie,

This can allow you to set it like this in Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer Content Advisor - Allow or Block Specific Websites

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Any way to do the blocking within Firefox or with an extension?
I'm using version 3.6.12

The custom host file method works in Firefox.

Windows has a host file and you can add any site you want to it.

The host file is found in C windows system32 drivers etc.

Another great feature of the HOSTS file is that it is a two-way file, meaning if some parasite does get into your system (usually bundled with other products) the culprit cannot get out (call home) as long as the necessary entries exist.

Hosts File : Use in Windows 7 / Vista

I block websites at the router level. Some routers have advanced parental control ft.s and some only have basic ft.s. That way they can't bypass the block by putting a Linux disc in or computer hopping.
