IP Deny Manager Print this Article
The IP Deny Manager feature allows you to block access to your site for one or more IP addresses. You can also ban fully qualified domain names (FQDNs).
An FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) is a name that uniquely defines a domain’s location. It is usually seen as
host.example.com. with a trailing dot. For the purposes of cPanel, including a final dot is not necessary, but the domain name must contain at least 2 dots. FQDNs must be written in lowercase letters.
