  • I don't think Windows Firewall provide a way to add the URL directly, Endpoints can be IP addresses only in the Firewall rule.

    Hi Chintan16,

    Thanks for posting here.

    Windows built-in firewall can’t restrict by URL or domain name but we may consider to deploy some sort of firewall product like TMG/IAS at edge , products that supports such restriction .

    Thanks.
