This should be a FQDN (complete address) not just a domain.

Beware that this implies a file in your 'lists' directory and files
without a '.' in the name are interpreted as lists. A request such
as 'lists' will cause a default restrict_post.config file to be
created and could allow someone unintended access to this file. If
you're intentionally referring to a list named "restrict_post",
just be sure you've set up the restrict_post.config file the way
you want it (I presume this is the case from earlier private e-mail
conversations). Otherwise you might want to name this file something
like "wwcd-auction.restrict" instead.
