Global blocking of IP addresses
Answer ID 4689   |   Last Review Date 12/19/2018

Is there a way to block IP addresses from a specific country from hitting the end-user pages?

Environment:

IP, Network configurations

Resolution:

Generally speaking it is not possible to globally block IP addresses with existing product functionality. Though by corralling all end-user content into one interface, separate lists of IPs for blocking could be made, but no specified network blocks could be guaranteed to originate only from end user versus non-end user sources.

There are a variety of geographical IP databases that could potentially be used, but that would need to be a customization and this would not prevent potentially bad actors from retrieving the source directly.
