Allow or block website access
Website Security firewall can allow or block IP addresses from accessing your site.
- Allow IP Addresses aren't blocked by firewall security rules that restrict access by IP address to WordPress administration panels like administrator or wp-admin.
- Block IP Addresses blocks all access to your website from the IP address.
Warning: When you add an IP address to your Block list, everyone visiting from that IP address will be blocked. For example, all web traffic from employees browsing from a large company can come from a single IP address. If you block that IP address, no one at that company can view your website.
Note: It's helpful to clear the cache after allowing or blocking an IP address.
