open DNS (http://www.opendns.com/). Although I haven't used it myself I have heard good things. Are you looking for parental control? Opendns can be used network wide.

You could see if your router supports IP/website blocking.

Then open DNS should work for you.

You can simply modify your host file. Many software firewall can block specified URL / IP range too.
