The DNSWatch Domain Search feature is the easiest way to determine whether a domain is currently found on a Domain Feed, the Whitelist or Blacklist. From the Domain Search results, you can select actions to add or remove domains from the Whitelist or Blacklist.
The domain search feature is available in the DNSWatch Domains menu, and is also available from the Blacklist and Whitelist pages.
Search for a Domain
- Log in to your DNSWatch account.
- In the text box, type the domain and click the Search icon.
The Domain Search page appears with search results.
Search results include the specified domain and any subdomains. The results tell you the DNSWatch status for the domain based on your content filter policies, Whitelists and Blackhole lists. If the specified domain is not found, it appears in the search results as an allowed domain.
Domain Search Actions
From the search results on the Domain Search page, you can select an action to add or remove a domain or subdomain from the Blacklist or Whitelist. The available action depends on whether the domain or subdomain is allowed, or was found on the Whitelist, Blacklist, or a Feed. To see the available action for a domain or subdomain in a search result, click Actions.
For each item in the Domain Search results, you can take these actions:
Add to Blacklist
For an allowed domain, this action adds the domain to the DNSWatch Blackholed Domains list.
Remove from Blacklist
For a domain found on your DNSWatch Blacklist, this action removes it from the Blackholed Domains list.
Add to Whitelist
For a domain or subdomain found on a Feed, this action adds it to the Whitelisted Domains list.
Remove from Whitelist
For a domain or subdomain found on the Whitelist, this action removes it from the Whitelisted Domains list.
Domain Search is also available from the Whitelisted Domains and Blackholed Domains pages. From those pages you can also add and remove domains from the Whitelisted Domains, Blackholed Domains, and Filtered Content lists. For more information, see:
