IP Deny Manager

For cPanel version 11.28

This feature is capable of blocking a single IP address or a range of IP addresses from accessing your site. Fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) can also be banned. See the glossary for more information about FQDNs.

Deny (Ban) an IP Address

To deny/ban an IP address:

  1. Enter the IP into the IP Address or Domain field.
  2. Click the Add button.
IP addresses can be added in 5 different ways:
  • Single IP Address (Example: 10.5.3.333)
  • Range (Example: 10.5.3.3-10.5.3.40)
  • Implied Range (Example: 10.5.3.3-40)
  • CIDR Format (Example: 10.5.3.3/32)
  • Implied (Example: 10.)


note Note: Entering “10.” as an implied IP address implies 10.*.*.*, where * represents a positive whole numbers in an IP address. Therefore, entering “10.” will block all IP addresses that begin with 10. Please exercise discretion when implying IP addresses.

Unban an IP Address

To remove a denied IP address:

  1. Click the Circle_X_button.gif button under the Remove header next to the appropriate IP address.
  2. From the next screen, confirm the IP address’s deny-removal by clicking Yes.
