Do you have a website which gets inundated with SPAM or hacking attempts from visitors or bots originating from certain countries?
To help put a stop to this you could ordinarily use the “blacklist” feature of the All In One WP Security and Firewall plugin to block visitors via specific IP addresses or IP ranges. This is a good solution but keep in mind that you may have to repeatedly keep adding IP addresses to the blacklist as you discover more spammers and hackers using different IP addresses.
However, if you wanted more precision and control over the IP addresses you want to block, you could add further granularity by specifying the country from which you want to block the IP addresses.
To achieve this you need an accurate way to resolve an IP address to the country of origin and this is exactly what we’ve done with our latest offering.
