How does Block Website Software Utility works
The Block Website Utility add / edit entries in Windows Hosts File
Windows Hosts File stores the mapping of IP Address to Name
When you create an entry into the utility to Block website, the utility enters a record into the hosts file which says if user tries to go to sitename.com then go to ip address 127.0.0.1
Or in other words the added entry says (if you have created an entry of sitename.com in the utility) when user tries to browse to http://sitename.com instead browse to http://127.0.0.1 and when http://127.0.0.1 does not exits, browser says page cannot be displayed.
