I'm looking for an effective porn blocking software or DNS that does not show a custom error page when going on a blocked website.

I want it to act like the blocked website does not exist without redirecting (changing URL), thus returning a 404 error on the original URL.

Is there any solution out, already? I prefer free things, but I would be interested for a solution that costs money, too.

    That's rather asking for a howto (How to Block All Adult Websites using Free OpenDNS) rather than for software – especially as you don't even mention the basics like what OS it should run on or what your price limit is ;) – Izzy Jan 17 '17 at 13:13
  • @Izzy Sorry, I edited my question to provide this information. Well, I'm aware how to setup a custom DNS on my router. My problem is such DNS services will always redirect to a different page telling the user the website got blocked. I don't want that. It would be great the user would not even recognize this website exists. – WorUnc Jan 17 '17 at 14:34

    Hm. Then you could maybe use Unbound DNS with an "adult block list" (see DNS server for blacklisting tons of domains and also some TLDs and watch out for "Securemecca")? Alternatively, as pointed out, use OpenDNS and their adult filter – other than you expect, they AFAIK don't lead you to a landing page but deliver the correct "not found". At least they do without filters (using that myself, but didn't try their filters). – Izzy Jan 17 '17 at 15:17

There's is no absolute solution. There are millions of adult websites on the internet and thousands of new ones are created every day, no one can have a complete list of all URLs.

For blocking websites you can use a web proxy such as Privoxy or block at router level, for example.

    Systems admin best practices is to block everything and then allow what you want unless there is a known, discrete list of things to block. – ivanivan Feb 17 '17 at 1:23
