    Is it possible to do this? For example, if “porn” is in the URL can’t all sites be blocked for this? There are so many new sites popping up, they escape the filter. Thanks

    Do you have an example of domains being missed? We try to detect new domains and block them as quickly as possible.

    thanks,

    Hi Daniel,

    Here are two that you recently blocked after I reported them. It seems that some sites are, for some reason, just generating as many new sites as possible. As you can see, one doesn’t have to visit these sites to know they are bad, the URLs are pretty clear. So, if something has “porntube” or “maturesex” or some other obvious word combo in the URL, I would think it would be beneficial to have those sites blocked. Is this possible?

    .. DOMAIN REMOVED..

    We added to our roadmap to see if we can implement something like that.

    thanks!
