    This needs to occur on the side of your network, not the iOS device.  You can restrict some device features, under restrictions, but not particular websites.

    You cannot do this in Safari. If you need to block websites on an iPad, you will need to turn off Safari in the Restrictions, install a third-party web browser such as McGruff or MobiCIP that does allow site filtering, then turn off installing apps in the Restrictions to keep the user from just installing a YouTube app.

     

    If this is for a site such as a school, then blocking the YouTube site in your firewall, as Bonesaw suggested, will probably be easiest, though that will control only those devices connected to your WiFi network. Anyone using a cell connection will of course still be able to connect.

    That's true in iOS 7, which hadn't been released when this thread was last active. It's not correct for iOS 6 or earlier. Blocking just the mobile version of YouTube may not prevent someone from getting access, though, so they may have to block the full site as well.

     

    Regards.
