Creating a Domain List

A domain list stores domain and app names that are exclusively targeted (on an allowlist) or blocked (on a blocklist) in your tactics. A domain list can be used by tactics in any of your brands. To apply a list to your tactic, go to the Domain tab in the tactic editor.

To create a new domain list, upload a file that contains all of your domains or make a new list through Basis.

After you create domain lists, if there are allowlists and blocklists you plan on using together often, you can create a domain list set to quickly and easily apply them to your tactics.

Uploading a Domain List

You can create a domain list offline and then upload it. It must be a TXT or CSV file that lists the domains you want to include. It can contain up to 100,000 domains separated by commas, semicolons, or line breaks.

    • Blocklist: The DSP never bids on impressions where the domain name or app ID/bundle ID is observed in the bid request.
  8. Click Attach file to upload the TXT or CSV file that contains the domains you want to target or exclude.
