    Hi, I am having some trouble with a specific person attacking sites on my server.

    Is there a way I can block his IP from accessing the whole server?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I would suggest installing a firewall on your server to protect you from the attacks your stating and many more security threats.
    I would suggest ConfigServer Security & Firewall.
    You can also add ip addresses into the firewall configuration and the firewall will block the ip addresses from accessing the server.

    Note: ConfigServer Security & Firewall is compatible with cPanel & WHM.

    If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me.

    route his IP address to the loopback interface and he will not bother you again.
