How do I deny IP address access?


Do you want to stop someone from visiting your website? This tool will block anyone from a specified IP address.

How to find out a visitor's IP address

Use the web statistics tools to find more information on your visitors. We suggest you go to cPanel and click the Latest Visitors icon. Look for the Host information; it could be an IP or a domain name.

How to block the IP address

  1. Login to cPanel and click IP Deny Manager.
  2. Under "Add an IP to deny", please enter IP address or domain name you wish to block.
  3. Click the Add button.

How to unblock the IP address

  1. Login to cPanel and click IP Deny Manager.
  2. At the bottom, under "Current IP addresses being blocked", click Remove.

Deny All

You can also set an option for deny from all, which will deny everyone.

This must be done by coding your .htaccess file as follows:

deny from all
allow
from70.24.291.52
allow
from 216.130.49.223 #my house

Note: It is possible to block access to yourself accidentally by using this method.

Be sure to allow access via your IP otherwise you will be blocked as well. You can find out your current IP address by visiting the What is your IP? page. If you accidentally block yourself, please contact Host 99 via email. You will need to confirm your identity ("verify your account") before we can unblock your IP.
