    If it's just a small number of servers you can create individual zones for each of the websites, each "" or "", but that's not comprehensive.  Another approach would be to set up forwarding to a DNS provider like OpenDNS that allows you to block specific websites or categories of websites, like Porn or Social Networking sites

    I would setup a OpenDNS account and point all of your user DNS resolution to the opendns servers for name resolution.

    Sorry for the late response, live has been crazy lately... But yes it is a small network and I created zones and it works perfectly for what I need!

    Thank you!
