Understand Domain Restriction | Zoho Creator Help

Understand domain restriction

This help page is for users in Creator 6. If you are in the older version (Creator 5), click here. Know your Creator version.

The Domain restriction feature lets you restrict access only to the users whose email addresses belong to the verified domain. It secures your application by preventing users from other domains from gaining access to your application. A verified domain is a domain (eg: xyz.com) that is owned by you or your organization and in which you have all the administrative privileges.

By default, users whose email belongs to any domain can be added to your Zoho Creator application. However, in some cases, you may want to restrict the users with whom the application can be shared based on their email addresses. In such scenarios, the Domain Restriction feature is beneficial.

Domain restriction will be applied to the existing users of the application. When added, the status of the users whose email doesn't belong to the verified domain will be changed to 'Inactive' and will not be able to access the application.

For example, let's consider an organization named "Zylker". It has a verified domain "zylker.com" and wants its Zoho Creator application to be accessible by individuals who are part of the organization, but not with those from outside Zylker. To achieve that, Zylker can enable domain restriction in the application for the verified domain "zylker.com". This means that the application can be shared with a user with the email "jackson@zylker.com" but cannot be shared with a user with the email "jackson@abc.com".
