    Just wondering if it is better to use IP Address Deny Manager for individual domains as opposed to using something like csf which only allows you to block for the whole server?

    By using IP Address Deny Manager to handle individual domains, how much of a load will this be compared to say using csf and blocking for the whole server?

    Hello :)

    I don't believe you will notice much of a difference in server load unless you are adding thousands of IP addresses. Do you plan to add a large number of blocks?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply. Glad to hear there won't be much of a server load increase. As for a large number of blocks, I sure hope not. ;) Just trying to protect the domain on the server a little instead of having to change the ip tables for the whole server.
