Exists some way to block all DNS queries on NextDNS?

I mean, I need to block whole internet access to my child.
I know that I could do this with other solutions, but I want to know if this is possible with NextDNS.

    NextDNS is the wrong tool for that, but you could try blocking all TLDs.   It would be simpler  to block access at the router/firewall with a simple rule

    You can add all allowed devices's mac addresses to whitelist in your router and block internet for any other devices. I think all router nowadays support this feature. It's more effectice since dns and mac is easily tempered these days. 馃榿

    I've implemented this sort of blocking solution for the same purposes.  You need to use the API to block then remove the blocks for the common top level domains.   I block .com, .net and .org which seems to cover 99.99% of DNS requests.    So for example, you'd block the .com TLD with this: curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "X-Api-Key: [YOUR API KEY]" --data '{"id": "com"}' "https://api.nextdns.io/profiles/[your profile]/security/tlds"    and then unblock with curl -X "DELETE" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "X-Api-Key: [YOUR API KEY]" "https://api.nextdns.io/profiles/[your profile]/security/tlds/com"

    You'll also need some method to schedule the block/unblock.  Hope this helps.
