    How can I block China?

    I just released some information about a free web hosting deal at newehost.com and someone told the chinese.

    I have had 15 forum signups and over 100 unique visits in the last 12 hours. And it's intensifying.

    Is there a way to block china from my website?

    Hey MrLen,

    Well, I'm sure you know it will be tough to keep an entire country out, especially with ip address re-allocation and proxy servers...

    however, this neat little script may help you out. Just choose china and add them to your firewall rules

    Visit this site - they maintain a complete list of all curreent Chinese and Korean IP blocks - there is also about how to use it with tools like APF.

    What firewall are you using?
    If it is apf, then at a command prompt
    Code:
    apf -d xx.xxx.x.xx

    Sorry, I don't know anything about server firewalls. Are you suggesting that there's a firewall on my server?

    Uh oh... no, not suggesting, assuming.
    You better have a firewall or you are opening yourself up to all kinds of trouble

    ok, well I have never heard of it. I don't know how to run a server so I pay for managed servers.

    Is it (the firewall) something I can get at in cPanel/WHM? Or do I have to se SSH? Or FTP?

    You should contact them, in this case. If your server is managed, most likely there is a firewall, but you should check to make sure.

    While you are at it, ask them about banning those ip addresses
