Win7 Firewall rule question

Is there any chance that I can create a rule in the Win7 firewall by blocking outbound traffic to a specific domain?

Also, this rule would be using or selecting All IP Protocols.

For example, if I suspect that a website has an exploit in it, then I would want to be able to block connections to that specific domain like ABC.com or adding multiple domains.

Thanks

Sort of.
You can deny access to a IP address, which would in-turn deny access to any websites hosted on that IP address.

If you don't want to play with IP addresses you can use HOSTS file ( C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc ) and there write specific domains you would like to block in this format:
127.0.0.1 domaintoblock.com
127.0.0.1 domaintoblock2.com
