Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I blocked a site (http://exampleurl.com/) in DD-RWRT's control panel and it worked, but just for that exact URL, it didn't block the entire website (http://exampleurl.com/stuff/etc) and all other sub-domains can still be accessed.

Is there a way to make DD-WRT effectively block an entire website and its sub-domains?

Would blocking the IP suffice? –  Dave Mar 1 '13 at 10:14
    
@DaveRook that site uses AWS, does cloud servers still have the same IP across the board? –  Ghost Mar 1 '13 at 16:50
    
@DaveRook OK so I tried the IP way and it didn't work, it didn't even block the main page like the URL did, any ideas? –  Ghost Mar 6 '13 at 14:24

You can use for example exampleurl.com in Website Blocking by Keyword field. This will disable URLs links which containing exampleurl.com string.

Also you can use any word from an URL to block it. So if you want to disable some subdomain you can use the string as for example sub1.exampleurl.com and it'll be blocked but another subdomains like sub2.exampleurl.com will stay accessible.

If you want to shut down every shop you can set the shop in the Website Blocking by Keyword field and every link which contains the word shop will be blocked, and it does not matter if it is http://shop.anyurl.anydomain or http://anyurl.anydomain/shop.

Filtering of https:// URLs is problematic because they are encrypted in the communication and the router does not see them.
