    Hi, I really like this feature too. I also have question, IS this feature blocking both frontend and backend OR just block backend (root access such as whm)? How do i block just backend and still allow users access frontend?

    Thank you

    Hello @Derekn,

    cPhulk monitors the following web servers and services:
    • cPanel services (Port 2083).
    • WHM services (Port 2087).
    • Mail services (Dovecot and Exim).
    • The PureFTPd service.
    • Secure Shell (SSH) access.
    The Countries Management feature with cPHulk Brute Force Protection lists countries that you can whitelist, blacklist, or remove from either list. The whitelist specifies the IP addresses that cPHulk always allows to log in to your server. The blacklist specifies the IP addresses that cPHulk never allows to log in to your server. It's not actually blocking these IP addresses at the firewall level. Instead, it's used to determine if the login attempt will succeed.

    Thank you.
