If I want to block all derivations of "acme.com" in URL filtering how should I format the domain in my blocklist/custom blocking category?
If I add "acme.com" then that doesn't appear to match "www.acme.com", but if I add "*.acme.com" then it doesn't match "acme.com" (although it does it that redirects to another URL such as www.acme.com).
Ultimately I wan to be able to say I am blocking ALL traffic associated with a specific domain with as few repeated entries as possible!
