Hi - What is the best practice to blacklist or reserve names from being registered? For example - we want to make sure that the names like locahost*,localdomain* can't get created as hostnames in DNS.  Is there a way to block this?

 

Thanks

Hi LEdwards,

 

I believe "Host Name Policies" under "Host naming" is what you are looking for.

 

You may also create a record which is protected in the later versions of NIOS, or a complex host record would do the trick if you are looking for just a record.

 

Regards,

Syam.
