How to open sites through domain names in proxy server? I have already declared ACL in the squid config file. Please suggest me where do I have to declare ACL: before or after the ACL Safe Ports?

You have to define the allow rule before the deny ACL.

@JovinThariyath Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! I recommend expanding this answer (by editing) to explain this in greater detail, perhaps with an example. – Eliah Kagan Aug 26 '14 at 17:14
But in your environment web filtering can be takes place through squidguard and we need to use wildcards like .ae ,.com instead of adding one by one sites manually – user247423 Sep 22 '14 at 11:56
