Filtering / Control for Browsing

I'd like to be able to point some computers' dns server designation to a dns server that only allows/translates the hostnames of my choosing.  These computers are only to be able to access a very limited amount of domain names.  My question, specifically, is: Is there a service that functions similarly to how ScrubIT.com's service but that gives me access to the allowable hostnames?  I considered leaving the DNS entries blank and modifying the hosts file but one of the sites does not just have a single IP address to resolve to.

Also, and maybe as an alternative, can you give me recommendations to some client-side applications that would accomplish what I'm needing?  I looked into GFI's web monitor but it is basically a web-proxy server that I would have to maintain on my own site.

(I'm surprised I can't find a zone for 'filtering' or 'web filter' to be assigned to!)

Look like you just need your own DNS server.
You can configure it to resolve your own records


or depending your OS a WINS server :

if you've a windows server on your network you can install, activate or configure this services

Looks like OpenDNS.com is going to work for me.

OpenDNS.com will work good enough.
