Country Blocking – Blocking Top Three Attack Countries
The majority of website attacks come from specific countries, such as China, Russia and Turkey. CloudProxy now gives you the option of blocking them from interacting with your site.
If you enable this option, IPs from these countries will still able to view all content, but they will not be able to register, submit comments os attempt to login. So, it’s basically a read-only mode.
Here’s how to do it: under security on your CloudProxy settings, switch option “Block proxies and top three attack countries (China, Russia and Turkey)” to ON, like this:
If you want to choose which countries you’d like to block from accessing your site, Sucuri also give you this option under Geo Blocking on your CloudProxy security settings.
There are two options there: Viewing and Posting
Any visitors from the countries you select under viewing won’t even be able to see your site.
Any visitors from the countries you select under posting will only be able to see the contents of your site, but they will not be allowed to post, register, buy or comment.
