[IE] Block a specific website from history.

Hi
I have Windows 7 and use Internet explorer 9 to browse the web.
Is it possible to block just a particular website from showing in the history with a registry hack or the changing of some other setting?
I already know that in private browsing blocks everything but I'm talking about not using in private browsing and still being able to block a certain site.

Thanks

You want to be able to browse it though?

Don't go to the porn site and then you won't have to wory about it showing up in the history.

If that was the issue I wouldn't have asked.

I'm mostly interested in knowing if there is such a way or not.
I have a suspicion about something and want to know if what I asked is possible and how computer savvy a person might need to be to do such a thing.

after use, you could just delete the site from history.
Or you can just use another browser for that matter.

Do you have access to router logs?

The only way I know of to prevent a website from appearing in history is to use private browsing. You can't do that on a site-by-site basis. You *_might_* be able to do what you want by opening a "private browsing" session before visiting that site, but you have to handle that manually. Do all your other browsing in the other window. Not sure if history is off completely while one "InPrivate" window is open, or just off for the "InPrivate" window, you'll have to test that yourself.

You can do something similar with Firefox. To do it in Firefox, set up two profiles. To browse the site you don't want tracked, start Firefox with the "-no-remote" and "-P " command-line options, where is the name you have given your non-tracked profile.

As noted above, your router will know every » site you visit, and it may know the URLs of the » sites, just not their content.
