Creating a domain on the server would be helpful because you could then enforce restrictions based on group policy.

Oh by the way, typing in capitols makes it very hard to read, i had to read your question 3 times in order to fully understand what you're saying.  For future questions, you should consider typing in lower case so that we can assist you better.

Restricting Internet access through Group Policy is not easy. It would be much better if your network invested in a proxy server, perhaps Microsoft's ISA Server, which would enable you to set granular policies on what traffic can and cannot leave and enter the network.

If this is just a few users you want to stop accessing the Internet from the server, there is also the dummy proxy approach. Simply open their Internet Options (Control Panel > Internet options). Go to the Connections tab, then click Lan Settings, and enter 127.0.0.1 for the proxy server. Check the box "Bypass for local addresses". Once you OK out, the user you set this on can now not access the Internet.
