Geo-blocking upside down

Post by Pat D » Tue Jan 16, 2018 9:56 pm

Geo-blocking -excluding a user from your site based on the user's location.
Is that close enough? Good.
I want to do the opposite.
I want to know how a user can block websites FROM a specified location.
I know I can alter search engines to bring me info from only a specific country's sites.
I want to be able to access all sites EXCEPT those in a certain country. You follow?

Any thoughts?

If you can get the IP block addresses you can stick them in the hosts file. That will meet your requirement that you "want to be able to access all sites EXCEPT those in a certain country."
