Is there a way to set up a comprehensive white list?

    Yes, if it's for home use, you'll have to upgrade to OpenDNS VIP.  This comes with whitelist-only mode.

    If it's not for home use, you'll go for the Enterprise line of services: http://www.umbrella.com/

    Think about, if you want to allow "Google Maps, and ONLY that, I would be looking for a way to add maps.google.com to a white list, then have EVERYTHING else blocked", you do not really want to block eveything else.  There are software updates, OS hot patches, AV updates, time syncs, VoIP, IPTV, e-mail services and much more which are essential for a computer and user to work orderly and to be protected.  DNS is about everything where domain names are involved, not just surfing the web with a browser.....

    Yes, you are correct.  I was just trying to keep the question scenario simple.  The white-listed domain would not necessarily be Google Maps, and I was also planning on making sure that all the other online resources for patches, updates, etc. would also be on the white list.  I will check out the VIP upgrade.
