Is it possible to set IE to use a proxy server just for specific sites, for example all sites ending with *.domain.com
I know that is possible the inverse way with the excpetions.

Thanks in advance

You can use a proxy.pac-file to configure the sites to use a proxy. This can be made arbitrarily complex as you can use standard javascript.
For a first start you may want to check http://helpdeskgeek.com/networking/proxy-pac-file/.

For example to configure your browser to only use a proxy for specific sites you may want to change the first example to something like:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    if (dnsDomainIs(host, "domain.com"))
              return "PROXY your_web_proxy:XXXX";
    return “DIRECT”;

Could work, but is more complex that we really need.
