Assumption: you are allowing internal users to only access 30 external websites.

without knowing what type of equipment you have, here are some suggestions:
Cisco ASA can do identity based firewall blocking using FQDN
websense, and other products like it, are built for just this purpose
block DNS to the internet and force users to use internal DNS. only resolve for the sites you want.

Draytek 2830, is the websense product good? Happy to spend if it does the job.

your router can do this: "blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists"

but if you want to buy something:
CDW

you could also look at baracuda networks
