I need help configuring a GPO to make add an entry to IE compatability view settings

I need a GPO on our  Windows Domain that will permanently add Localhost to our IE compatibility View Settings on individual workstations. We are still running on Domain level 2003 but have a 2008r2 and 2012r2 DC running. I need to start out with a stupid question. When I am on a DC and open Group Policy Editor am I setting policy for just that server or the entire domain? I know I probably need to use Group Policy Management. I want to be very careful because Admins before me have set other GPOs and I do not want to over write anything.  I assume I am going to start with Group Policy Management Editor and edit Default Domain Policy / User Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / internet Explorer / Compatibility View   but I am not sure what to do after that. Any tips would be welcome

You will find the settings you need to change here

Also NEVER edit the Default Domain or any other Default policies!! you should create a new policy and link it.
