I want restrict the spammers from sign up option. Most of the emails used to sign up on my site is @palantirmails.com and when users sign up on my site on email section that will shows @gmail.com, @yahoo.com only accepted.

Also after they entered xyz@gmail.com only sign up button shows or redirected to mail confirmation page.

Currently i have using akismet antispam.

Thanks!

So you want to restrict registration to those who are registering with a gmail or yahoo account, right?

You don't need to show the sign up button and redirect the user to mail confirmation, only if it is a gmail or yahoo account. We have to do it silently and transparent to the person registering.

By that I mean, the person registers as normal, no matter what email they use. Behind the scene, if email is accepted, than we redirect to the mail confirmation page to inform the user that an email to validate their account has been sent.

If email not accepted, then we redirect them to the main page without any message and without registering their account.

I will see what I can do to alter the code for that and let you know.

Please be clear and precise from the first time!

You want to block "Just @palantirmails.com" or you want to only accept registrations with gmail and yahoo accounts?

There is a big difference:

just blocking @palantirmails.com will allow all other mail clients to register, gmail, yahoo, hotmail, lycos, etc.

As for what you stated in the first post "when users sign up on my site on email section that will shows @gmail.com, @yahoo.com only accepted. "

This shows that you only accepts gmail and yahoo accounts.

Please clarify and be precise!

It is too broad! What are the domain based emails??? You started with blocking all registrations from @palantirmails.com and now you want to allow all domain based emails...

I cannot compile a list of all the domain based emails and it would be a lot of work to just code that for you.

If you want to block the @palantirmails.com only then I can tell you what to do, otherwise, you can accept all registrations and then you deactivate and block all those you don't want!!!
