Issue/Introduction

Are sub-domains blocked if only the domain names are specified in the local content filtering database ?

For example, if I block a domain, such as abc.com, using local database content filtering, does it means the sub-domain sub1.abc.com is blocked as well ?

Resolution

Sub-domains are also blocked if domains are specified in the local content filtering database.

In the previous example, sub1.abc.com is blocked.
