Block a Website with Access Rule

I'm trying to block a website using an access rule on my SonicWall router, but it isn't working. Here is my configuration:

  1. Created an address object:
    • Zone Assignment: WAN
    • Type: FQDN
    • Entered the domain with a *. before the domain name
  2. Created an access rule:
    • From: LAN
    • To: WAN
    • Action: Deny
    • Destination Address: Set to the address object created
    • All other settings left to 'Any'

I've tried this configuration with multiple domains and even the IP addresses of the websites, but the rule is still not working. Can someone explain why this rule might not be functioning as expected?
