Hmmm. Seem to be the job of the server admin not the server itself,
but I guess it could work if the server is given a table of URLs it's
allowed to check.

On a related note, our server here is called "xxx" and seems to attract
a lot of attention from search engine users according to our referer_log.
It's hillarious to see what combinations of search words lead to us.
We're also blocked off by the "web kid-lock software", which suits us
fine (we serve very boring physics research information).
