How to block and unblock IP addresses from accessing your site using the cPanel IP Blocker
Although our Hosting packages already have a firewall installed to detect potentially malicious behavior and automatically blocks those IP addresses.
Sometimes you will only want to stop someone or stop their IP address from accessing your website, which is most often done using the .htaccess file.
cPanel also has an IP blocking feature to help create these rules for you.
Login to your cPanel
Under section Security » IP Blocker
Next, enter the IP address or address range in the box and click "Add"
Enter the IP address or range in the IP Address or Domain text box. You can enter IP addresses in any of the following formats:
10., the system blocks access to any IP address that begin with 10.
You should then see a confirmation screen like this:
You should now see the newly-added IP or range in the Currently-Blocked list:
If desired, you can check your Websites ".htaccess" file and see that the block was added
This only works if cPanel's IP Blocker is how the IP was blocked in the first place, Otherwise the unblocking will need to be done another way
