  • Blocking IP's

    Does anyone have a good website link that gives ip address ranges...by country.

    I want to block a number of them.

    ie: Africa, Russia, All Asia, Europe, Britain, South America.
    Basically everywhere but North America.

    Thanks in advance,

      cloudflare

      Take a look at cloudflare... (https://www.cloudflare.com/)

      CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
      Its a free service that basically gives you a lot of control over the activity thats allowed on your site. They also act as a cashing service, and block spam bots and other things to save your bandwidth. I pay the 20 a month so i can get SSL (but that means you dont have to have your own SSL, and its not "shared" you get it for your own domain) However, because of the bandwidth savings, i was able to drop down a rung on 3dcart service and save 20 bucks a month... So bascily I get all the pro features, and SSL for free.

      It works perfectly so far.

        Very interesting, thanks for the info. Have you found that it speeds up your site?

        Are there any other 3Dcart owners out there who use CloudFlare?

          I posted more about it here:

          I have not found it speeds up my site, because it was already heavily optimized... Also the site does not cash the images that use the thumbnail.asp program. (I have all my images use this) but what I have noticed is the bandwidth savings.

          In the last 7 days:

          84,713 requests saved by CloudFlare
          155,928 total requests

          567.9 MB bandwidth saved by CloudFlare
          1.3 GB total bandwidth

            Thanks for that link. That's a lot of ips. Two questions:

            1- How did you reduce the number of ips to enter?

            2- If you click on "details" under the order ip, your link goes to "Domain Tools". That link is setup on the 3DCart side. But, you have to open an account with a credit card to continue using the "details" link on 3DCart. Have you done that? I am leary about this but it appears that that is the only way we can view the ip details. Is that correct?

              Hey, I found the continents for you. http://www.countryipblocks.net/continents/
              I have no idea how to enter all those numbers though. Maybe this will help.
