Is there a way to block a website by Domain name rather than IP address?
I’ll explain myself more. For instance, I subscribe to ITAuthority newsletter based in Austrailia and one of their ad sponsors is the dubious m1.au.2mdn.net. I’ve searched ARIN and WHOIS but they all turn up saying that what I gave isn’t a valid address. If you type in that address in your browser, you’ll get a blank page. However, I have proof that the site exists.
I do use PeerGuardian to ease the blocking process but the site won’t load at all until I turn off http filtering for that site. I’d hate to dump the newspaper as I do get valuable info from that site. I just hate ads that follow me all where I go on the net without my explicit permission and their cookies do more than just follow you. I’d like a way to permanently block them like how some firewalls allow you to block by domain name since I can’t find the matching IP address of the parent site.
Thanks for any help, it’s much appreciated.
