    Suggestion:

    Can you make a function with which I can stop referrer spam like ‘40016756-1.compliance-barak.xyz’. I like to stop all trafic from sites with extensions like: .xyz and .top

    Same problem on my website, let me know if you have a solution.

    Right now the plugin does not allow wildcards where you could add something like “*.xyz”, but it’s on the roadmap now.

    Due to holidays and Wordcamp US, probably won’t have a release with that feature ready until Jan 2017.

    My bad, thought this was a forum topic. Trying your plugin now.
    And i added my list from analytics, do they upload to your list to help others?

    Yes, the user lists are compiled and periodically the aggregated lists are manually reviewed to see if any sites should be added to the global list.

    Version 1.1.8.5 will now automatically wildcard everything to the left of each custom block entry.

    Entering “some-dodgy-site.com” will block all subdomains and the specified domain, ex:

    sub1.some-dodgy-site.com
    sub2.some-dodgy-site.com
    sub3.some-dodgy-site.com
    etc will all be blocked

    This will also work with TLDs (.com, .net, .org, .xyz etc). Just enter the TLD (without a dot) into the custom block list:

    some-dodgy-site.com
    org
    xyz

    This will block any subdomain of “some-dodgy-site.com” along with ANY .org or .xyz site.
