For basic blocking by name, use the OpenDNS dns service.
For hotspot clients set it in the router's DNS client.
For Std access, use it in DHCP (hand it out)..
Place a block on remote DNS requests...

This is an about 80% fix, as access by IP is still not blocked.

A cool feature would be a reverse DNS test for the hotspot proxy...

I would also recommend the opendns service, easy to use and never had an issue with outages yet.

Just set the dns servers to 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
then head over to the openDNS website, setup an account and add your IP range so you can manage it.

There's a couple of simple filters they allow you to use, along with domain blocking.
