      The HTTP website referrer option on Dacast lets you add website referral restrictions to your content. 

      For example, if you own the website www.test.com, you can set up a restriction to block sites that aren’t www.test.com from trying to grab and reuse your embed code.

      Under the “Security” tab, there is a section called “Domain Control.”

      You can click the padlock icon to edit these settings for a live stream, video, or playlist. 

      To manage and apply global settings across your account by going to “Settings” on the left sidebar and click “Security.” Scroll to “Domain Control” to add or edit your referrers.

      Here is a video that explains how to set up this feature.
