Batch Block Website URL

I am wondering how you can block a website URL in both IE and FIREFOX with a batch file. Is that possible? If so how would you go about doing that?
Thanks

    No. Batch files can only run DOS commands or start programs. You'll need a firewall or internet filter to block websites.

    Im pretty sure you can block pages by editing the hosts file in your local system. Block the url by changing the ip.

    In windows
    %SystemRoot%system32driversetchosts

    The file is named "hosts" no extensions.

    yes it is - although it is a HOSTS file edit, go to:
