cPanel IP Blocker Interface

The IP Blocker interface in your cPanel control panel lets you block access to your website for one or more IP addresses or fully qualified domain names (FQDNs).

Accessing the IP Blocker interface

Login to your cPanel control panel using your web browser. Go to 'http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/' (without the quotation marks). So if your domain name is 'example.com' you should go to 'http://www.example.com/cpanel/' to login to your control panel. The IP Blocker interface is in the "Security" tab, simply click on the name or the icon to enter.
