Block a Domain, Not Just a URL

How do I block a whole domain? Blocking a site's homepage doesn't help if someone has a direct link to one of the site's other pages.

Hello lilricki13 ! Welcome to the community!

We understand that you wish to block a specific domain of a website. Allow me to help you with this.

You may try to configure your Trend Micro program's exception list. Kindly click on this link for the detailed instruction.

Configuring the Exception List of Trend Micro Security software


Then when placing the website's URL on that list, add wildcard expression. For example you want to block the whole www.samplewebsite.comyou may place this address on the exception/blocking list instead  - http*://*.samplewebsite.*/*.

Take note of the asterisks that are placed in between the website itself.

Let me know if this works.
