    Hi,

    I want to know if blacklisting an IP range in WHM will cause denying access to the websites as well.

    I am really disappointed with the bruteforce attack that even making me unable to login the root.

    Any suggestion and advise much appreciated.

    Where in WHM? If you have CSF installed and enabled, blacklisting the IP at WHM > ConfigServer Security & Firewall would block access to the entire server.

    Hello,

    You can access your site, if your IP is blocked in cPHulk database. But if your IP is blocked in firewall, then you can not access your server and sites from that IP.

    Hello,

    Could you clarify which option in Web Host Manager you would like to block an IP range with? The answer depends on the specific option you are using.

    Thank you.
