Is there any way, without using 3rd party softwares, to allow certain users on the WORKGROUP to access particular websites only.

Yes, but we need way more info about your network to tell you exactly how.

What info do you need? If there is a good third party software for that, it will be good too. But I would like if you can tell me how can I do that myself

Do all the clients have direct access through a router or via connection sharing on a server? In general, what you need is some type of a proxy server, that identifies the client by it's IP, mac address or username/pw and grants the access or denies it. So, what we need is your net topology.

Hello. I'm facing a similar issue with my network where I want to block certain/all websites for certain users within my network. I can see the issue was not resolved so I would be ever so grateful if I could get some guidance. With regards to the network topology it is as follows:
- There is a main router (D-Link) which is acting as the main gateway to give the internet acces.
- It is directly connected to a switch. There are 3 switches at the premises and they are interlinked. The PC's/Servers are connected to these switches.
- The router also acts as a wifi access point and there is another wifi access point connected to one of the switches.
- The addresses are done via DHCP through the main router, however, a static IP scheme can be put into place.

Please advise how can I achieve the web restriction that I require. Thank you for your time.
