Custom URL Categories

I run a url whitelist and blacklist on my S650 and I have noticed some strange behavior.

If I put "somesite.com" in my blacklist it will block the base url "somesite.com". It will not, however, block "www.somesite.com". If I put ".somesite.com" it will block "www.somesite.com" but will not block "somesite.com". Is this intended? Do I have to put "somesite.com, .somesite.com" for every url?

Thanks

RBC,

This is the intended behavior. It's the way that the simple match works. You can use regex matching to only specify the domain, but regex uses 10+ times the amount of cpu for matching.

I recommend never using regex unless you need to match a path.

Josh-

Thanks for the confirmation. It is what I assumed but I wanted to confirm.
