    Alex Shafren Did you test if you blacklist a domain, then user can't create account with email-id on those domain? You can also create organizations to put all uses (, and then tweak your help-center not to let them see or use content (user segment can be created to allow/disallow based on organization).

    I would like to know how to do this as well. We are in the education industry and while we want our help site to be public, we do not want any users to have an account unless they have .edu email OR from our company's domain.

    Hey Melody,

    What you could do is disable the Anybody can submit tickets option under Admin>Settings>Customers which will then prevent any users from registering on their end.

    This would mean that an Admin on the account would need to add users from their end via the agent interface or bulk user import.

    If that's not the solution for you, then whitelisting/blacklisting would be the only other option.

    In the whitelist field, you can add your .edu email and then add the (*) wildcard to prevent any other email domains access.

    Let me know if you have additional questions for me!
