There are two main DBs -- local (resident) and cloud.
My URL checker code shows that www.aircreek.com is classified as SPAM URLs in the Cloud DB, but is unknown/unverified in local DB for hostname and IP and cloud DB for IP.
Also, if you have the option enabled to do a reverse lookup on unclassified URLs, that adds another facet.
Thanks for the reply - forgot to specify that this is a resident DB that I did the lookup on. The difference between the cloud & resident DBs explains this...I did a closer inspection of my rule set and options and discovered that in my defualt settings I have checked to use online DB (cloud) if local DB yields no results
This would explain that although I have a rule to allow uncategorised URLS before the block rule, the site was still being blockedas was lokoing at the online DB.
Thanks for the pointer :-)
