Deny access to your site from a domain or IP
 
The IP Deny Manager allows you to prevent an IP address, domain name, or block of IP addresses from accessing your web site. If someone is using a lot of your bandwidth, posting malicious content, or should not be allowed to access your site for another reason, you can preventing them from doing so in the IP Deny Manager.  

Here are the steps:

  1. To access the IP Deny Manager, click on the icon above the words IP Deny Manager on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Enter the IP address or domain name you wish to deny access to in the blank field next to IP Address or Domain: (You can enter an IP block such as 1.2.3. also to deny access to all IPs that start with 1.2.3.)
  3. Click on "Add." The following will appear (except 1.2.3.4 will be the IP or domain you have entered): IP Deny ManagerUsers from the IP address 1.2.3.4 will not be able to access your site 

Troubleshooting: Make sure you have entered the IP address or domain in the proper format when adding IPs or domains to deny. IPs should be in the following format 1.2.3.4, and domains should look like domain.com.

Allowing access to denied IP addresses
 
If you no longer wish to deny access to a specific IP address, you can use the IP Deny Manager to allow access to that IP address.
 
Here are the steps:

  1. To access the IP Deny Manager, click on the words "IP Deny Manager" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Use the drop box next to "Remove" to select the IP that you wish to allow access to
  3. Click on "Remove." The following will appear (except 1.2.3.4 will be the IP address you have selected): IP Deny Manager

The IP address 1.2.3.4 will now be able to access your site.

Troubleshooting: Make sure that the IP is removed from the list below Current IP addresses being blocked or else it will still be denied access.
