    The Whitelist is used to remove Domains from the DNSBL Blocking.

    When you use the "TLD" option, it will automagically Wildcard block any domain that is a Root domain. So it would wildcard block "example.com" but not "ads.example.com".

    When a domain is wildcard blocked via TLD, you can use the "TLD Exclusion" list to remove that domain from the TLD functionality. This way, it will only block the single domains that are listed in the DNSBL Feeds and not wildcard block it.

    A Force Reload- DNSBL will be required after adding to the TLD Exclusion list.
