How do i block Hi5 ? (all web pages)
« on: September 30, 2008, 09:24:36 PM »
Is there a way to block the server itself instead of a page one by one?

Theres milion pages out there and i want to block all the crap from hi5 because its fully loaded of spyware.

Help me block hi5 at most possible please.

You didn't follow Tech's instructions.  Use the following:
http://hi5.com/*

You missed the important * of the end as that is a wildcard for everything behind the hi5.com/

You could go a step further and use this text string to block the URL *.hi5.com/* the first asterisk * blocks sub domains e.g. subdomain.hi5.com/webpage.html and you don't have to enter the http bit.

The first one you added or the one Tech suggested wouldn't cater for the sub domains and they would get through.

However, I believe you should use your firewall for this kind of blocking as with wildcards used in this way the web shield might just be slowed checking permutations of the wildcards.
