Blocking Foreign IPs using .htaccess

We have had a few request to block foreign ips from accessing clients websites due to abuse.

We generated a list of IPs that are known to run spambots and other malicious activity. This is a blanket block on the country based on public record

If you would like use this block list please contact our support.
