You can use group policy to create whitelists and blacklists of URLs. However, to block all but one URL, you would essentially have to blacklist the entire Internet.

If you're interested in trying, create or edit a new GPO and navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > Security > “Security Zones and Content Ratings”, then click on Modify Settings.


You'd be better off blocking URLs with a proxy server, or at the firewall.
