    Friends. I require a script which blocks opening external site when someone click on any external link on my website.

    Is it possible??

    Ummm...if you don't want them clicking an external link, don't put one on your site.

    Presto, you are done.

    Is he trying to block links contained in adverts and thus violate his TOS?

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    You can't prevent anything with JavaScript unless it is your browser - then you an attach JavaScript to the browser that blocks sites from being able to interfere with what you want to do. JavaScript attached to web pages can be turned off or overridden.

    The only part of the web page under the control of the page author is the HTML and what runs on the server.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
