Now i want , Nobody can access my webserver page "" from my Windows Machine .

For this reason i install SquidGuard and Blacklists . In Blacklists i found a lot of folder like Porn,Mail etc . I can't understand in which folder/file , i need to write my webpage address , so that i can't get access from my Windows pc. my squidGuard.conf file is :

dbhome /usr/local/squidGuard/db
