    Hello,

    I can confirm that your account is a PremiumDNS account. This type of account allows businesses to add multiple networks of larger sizes to a free account; however, content filtering is not available for PremiumDNS accounts. I will add this to the guide! If you are a home user, I can switch your account over to a Home Basic account. Please confirm if you are a home user.

    What is the best way to blacklist a whole bunch of domains? Write a command line script that posts domains using http requests?

    Would like a text area on the settings page to paste a list of domains.

    At the moment, you may only enter domains one at a time, up to 25 domains for home users and 50 for VIP users. Umbrella users are able to add more. With regards to your feature request, please voice this in our Idea Bank at https://support.opendns.com/forums/21211727-Idea-Bank

    @Alexander How many domains are Umbrella users able to block? Can't find a number on the website.

    There is no explicit limit on domains Umbrella users can block as it is designed for businesses with varying needs for many entries on their own allow and block lists.

    Is there an option to allow a domain from a browser, specially Firefox?

    Yes, you visit your settings or domain stats page with a browser to allow a domain.
    https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/

    Is this what you meant?

    oh hey there again rotblitz, you just replied to one of my posts regarding the same issue. :)

    I'm looking for a browser extension to do that instead of having to go to the OpenDNS website.

    Hello Alexander. I am not a network savvy and I just purchased the OpenDNS basic. I'm would like to setup my office network via a router connected to my ADSL. I am currently using a linksys E2100L and we will soon put up a Engenius EXS202EXT. Could you provide me some instruction on setting up my system. You can email me at gm@yapstransport.com.

    Appreciating your time on this.

    Not only not network sawy, but also not forum sawy.  Your message is totally off-topic for this thread.

    OpenDNS Home (Basic) is for home use only. If you want content filtering, you had to go for an enterprise version.

    If you have up to 5 users only, go for OpenDNS Prosumer.

    Regarding your router configuration: https://support.opendns.com/forums/21618374 
    In brief: fill all DNS server fields with OpenDNS resolver addresses: 
    208.67.222.222 
    208.67.220.220 
    208.67.222.220 
    208.67.220.222
