Important! The name should be provided without http:// or https:// prefixes and a document path after the domain part. If you need to block subdomains of a domain, use asterisk before the domain name, e.g.:
*netcontrol2.com
but not https://www.netcontrol2.com or netcontrol2.com/nc2features

Click Add to add the rule.

- repeat the operation for the second domain, i.e. *classroom-management-software.com

Save the profile; assign some name to the profile.

2. Apply the profile.
- select student computers in the teacher console;
- click Restrictions button on the top toolbar;
- click Other profiles button in "Access to Internet" section;
- find in the list the profile that we have created in the p.1
- click Send and Run to apply the profile to selected student computers.
