Restricting Access to Your Website by country
Not too long ago I was getting a lot of hits from overseas. I started doing a little bit of research trying to limit this access and that is when I came across Country IP Blocks website which generates ACLs (Access Control Lists) per country. It will even generate an .htaccess file for you.
This took a lot of work out of it because I was planning on doing a brute force approach based upon IP referrers and then blocking ranges if I identified them running scans. It’s a find, I felt worth sharing.
