Thank you!

    Requires a custom plugin. You'll want to hook into the 'BeforeRegister' event (using a method named UserModel_BeforeRegister_Handler). The Email will be in the array $this->EventArguments['User']. Compare it to the doman you want to restrict it to, and if it fails set $this->EventArguments['Valid'] to false.

    I tried this but doesn't work

    class MyMembershipPlugin extends Gdn_Plugin {

    public function UserModel_BeforeRegister_Handler($Sender) {
    $email = $this->EventArguments['User'][Email];
    if (strstr($email, '') === false) {
    $this->EventArguments['Valid'] = false;


    I don't know where is the email. I tried print_r($this->EventArguments['User']) to get the user email but it shows nothing because i'm redirected to home. So this is not working at all. Can you help me please? I'm lost.
