domain_restriction.exe: Prohibited Domain Names

The domain_restriction utility is used to manage the list of domain names that are prohibited when users create sites. This prevents users from creating sites with the names identical to the domain names of popular online stores and other resources. Then, these users can receive email messages sent by your customers to these domains, because the mail server ensures local delivery.
