    You add the related domain names to your "never block" list, or you uncheck the categories it belongs to.

    You can see your blocked domains here: https://dashboard.opendns.com/stats/all/blockeddomains

    Hello,

     

    As @rotblitz mentioned, the domain mensfitness.com is being blocked in your records. Here is the method to whitelist the domain:

    This does not appear on my screen!  There is no place for me to add nor do I see Never Block button anywhere.

    • Log into your dashboard at https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings and click on your network.
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and add the domain mensfitness.com to the field and set the option to Never Block
    • Click Add Domain

    @karosa I just responded to your support ticket #116661.  :)  rotblitz is correct, you had signed up for a Premium DNS account which does not allow you to custom configure your filtering settings. However, I have gone ahead and switched your account over to Home Basic, and you should be able to add domains to your 'never block' list.

    Also, as you have Premium DNS where nothing can be blocked, why would you want to unblock anything?  This doesn't make sense.  You even don't have any issue or need from begin...

    Hello,  I'm having a similar issue.  I am trying to unblock fangoria.com and dreadcentral.com by adding them to my "Always Allow" list.  I have cleared my dns cache and browser history / cache, after adding those two sites to my allow list.  Checked 30 minutes later, and both sites are still blocked.  Any other suggestions, or tips that I might be missing?

    Are you sure that these are blocked by your OpenDNS settings?  Does the OpenDNS block page appear?

    If so, ensure that you don't have the OpenDNS FamilyShield addresses configured, but the normal OpenDNS resolver addresses.  Domains blocked by FamilyShield cannot be whitelisted.

    "need help"

    Sure, else you would not have posted here, right?

    "I think i have Family shield how do i get the normal OpenDNS?"

    You configure the normal OpenDNS resolvers addresses 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220, 208.67.222.220 and 208.67.220.222 instead of the FamilyShield addresses 208.67.222.123 and 208.67.220.123.  What else?

    "because i want to unblock just this one website that i did not want blocked"

    Nothing is being blocked by default when using OpenDNS except phishing domains and some malware domains.  So you may not have to do anything to access this particular website.
