Create a web content filter profile

When you create a web content filter profile, each URL that you specify must begin with http:// or https://. If necessary, you should add separate entries for http:// and https:// versions of the same URL. DNS resolution does not occur, so restricted websites could still be accessible (for example, if you specify http://www.example.com, users might be able to access the website using the IP address).
