Window managing on Macs leaves much to be desired. This app has solved my issues with macOS's lack of built-in features since day one. Though there may be somewhat cheaper options, the constant updates and reliability of the app continue to make me a happy customer. (The app goes on sale so frequently that you really can't go wrong)

This has been sitting on my status bar since forever, always remind myself to use the keyboard shortcut, but never actually use it. (Or maybe unconsciously been using it)

I'm not sure if this is a functionality you are referring to, but you could try using Magnet to achieve what you want.

Magnet, CrowdCafe's macOS window manager, may be the most helpful third-party application I've ever used. The unobtrusive tool helps keep my Mac desktop organized. With support for up to six desktops, the application enables moving and automatically resizing windows via keyboard shortcut commands, the menu bar, or simply dragging windows to new locations.

That's exactly why I made this, but it does not block websites. On the plus side it means you need no additional setup. Launch it and work.

OS X: HazeOver makes it easy to focus on the task at hand, even if you have multiple windows open on your Mac. All it does is dim background windows and your desktop, and keeps the front, active window bright on top of all of them.
Macworld
There are lots of ways you can manage windows in OS X. You can use Spaces, or you could use multiple displays, and sort your windows on different virtual or physical desktops. But if you don't use either of these methods, you may find that when you have a lot of windows visible on your display, it can be hard to focus.
