How to block HTTPS

Recommended Posts

Hey I am trying to block a https based website via the Microsofts host fil, but it wont work, any help :)

 

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

 

# Copyright © 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#    127.0.0.1       localhost
#    ::1             localhost

127.0.0.1 mydomain.com

All you can do with that file is point a host name (i.e. part of / an entire domain - microsoft.com ) elsewhere.

If you put google.com in it, when your machine tries to resolve google.com, it'll get the ip address you specify in the hosts file. That's all it does.

 

You'd have to also list every subdomain - www.google.com etc. I don't think it supports wildcards etc.
