In the Windows Server operating system, you can set up a group policy that will manage the settings on all of the computers in your domain. If you want to control the web browsing abilities of your users, you can configure your group policy to block certain websites from workstations. Before the website blocks can be added to the group policy, you must set them up in Internet Explorer on your server.
