Wildcard for URL White/black list?

Not applicable

Is it possible to wildcard a URL for whitelist/blacklist? The issue we run into is that we will whitelist www.cooldomain.com, but if the user goes to just cooldomain.com it blocks it.  Vice versa if we just put whitelist cooldomain.com. So we end up having to create to entries for EVERYTHING. And then if you hit a domain that load balances via a different DNS name or sends to shop.cooldomain.com you have yet another URL.  Wildcards would be awesome. I have tried *.cooldomain.com and that didn't seem to do it.

If you set this up in a url profile/url category then it should work.

The problem is that *.domain.com != domain.com because domain.com is http(s)://domain.com where *.domain.com covers http(s)://anything.domain.com

However im not sure if * also covers .

I mean if *.domain.com would cover a.b.c.domain.com

A lazy method might be to setup *domain.com but then somethingelsedomain.com would hit it which might be bad...
