URL lists

The URL Lists section enables you to specify HTTP addresses to block, allow or exclude from checking. Websites in the list of blocked addresses will not be accessible. Websites in the list of excluded addresses are accessed without being scanned for malicious code.

To allow access only to the URL addresses listed in the Allowed URL list, select the Restrict URL addresses option.


To activate a list, select Enabled next to the list name. If you want to be notified when entering an address from the current list, select Notified.


In any list, the special symbols * (asterisk) and ? (question mark) can be used. The asterisk substitutes any character string, and the question mark substitutes any symbol. Particular care should be taken when specifying excluded addresses, because the list should only contain trusted and safe addresses. Similarly, it is necessary to ensure that the symbols * and ? are used correctly in this list.
