macOS layman here,
I'm trying to block websites natively with mixed results through Terminal using sudo nano /etc/hosts
My syntax is
127.0.0.1 www.website.org ::1 www.website.org
I've tried various iterations, with space, with tab, but there's a pesky little website that I can't manage to block.
eg. I've blocked lichess.org but haven't managed yet to block 4chan.org. I've searched the web but I didn't get any wiser. I don't understand how I can block one site with exactly the same syntax but I can't block another.
macOS Big Sur Version 11.2.3 (20D91) / Safari Version 14.0.3
Ideally I would like to do this on the back end without using Screen Time or Parental Control. Any help is appreciated.
127.0.0.1 www.4chan.org 127.0.0.1 4chan.org 127.0.0.1 https://www.4chan.org 127.0.0.1 https://4chan.org 127.0.0.1 https://boards.4channel.org 127.0.0.1 https://boards.4chan.org ::1 www.4chan.org ::1 4chan.org ::1 https://www.4chan.org ::1 https://4chan.org ::1 https://boards.4channel.org ::1 https://boards.4chan.org
