To ban, to ban a user

I'd like to know if any of you have an opinion as to the best translation for banning, in the context of a website. The two verbs that come to mind are expulsar and excluir.

banning = exclusión, expulsión
to ban = excluir, expulsar

Which is the better of these two options, or can you think of a better term?

Mil gracias.

The most common word we use in Spain is an anglicism, we say "banear" (you can look for "banear" in a searcher and you'll see a lot of entries, although this term is not "good Spanish" at all)

I'm a non-native Spanish speaker, so I could certainly be wrong, but
I would say prohibición

You can say both "prohibir" or "expulsar", even "restringir", but I said the common word used in Spanish forums.

Oh I see what you mean. In computer lingo, banear is the word, but I know that's Spanglish.
Ban=prohibit in English. The government has banned (or prohibited) the use of DDT.
The book is banned (or prohibited) in Iran.
I you hear the following:
El gobierno baneó es uso de DDT
o
Iran baneó el libro?

In these cases we'd use "prohibir":

El gobierno prohibió el uso de tal sustancia o determinado libro.

"Banear" is only used in forums or web sites. I wouldn't say that it's "Spanglish", since Spanglish doesn't exist in Spain, it's just an Anglicism:

Este usuario ha sido baneado del foro.

I know that it's not a correct word, but it's used, just like "post". We use post instead of "mensaje" very often. Although I know they are Anglicisms, I can't avoid their use, they're too frequent. Maybe I should avoid, but...

To ban can be translated as prohibir la entrada, but I guess it's not a good option when talking about forums.

Para excluir a un usuario de un foro, yo usaría "expulsar", para una prohibición permanente; para una temporal, "suspender" (como en la escuela).

Sí, supongo que es lo más correcto. ¿No usáis vosotros "banear"?
