This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

That's not a subdomain. Subdomain in subdomain.domain.tld is a subdomain. – paradroid Jan 4 '11 at 11:58
wasn't sure and edited it. but does sub-site describe it? – Creedy Jan 4 '11 at 12:53

The BlockSites addon for Firefox seems to be able to do this. You can use wildcards to block certain paths of websites, by the look of it.


share|improve this answer as opera user i did it this way but i would prefer a system wide way of blocking the sites. – Creedy Jan 4 '11 at 13:30
@Creedy: I doubt that will be possible, as the system or router will not have any business regarding specific paths of websites - only at a (sub)domain level. – paradroid Jan 4 '11 at 13:51
ok.. 3 browser have to be enough :D and i'm fine with the opera way - thanks to opera link it even is sync'd with my other machines. maybe some day i'll come up with another solution suitable for internet explorer as well.. – Creedy Jan 4 '11 at 14:02

If you use Google Chrome you could use StayFocusd extension to help you stay away, you an specify them in there, but unfortunately that's not system wide.
