How to Block Websites With cPanel


A Linux-based Web-hosting option, the control panel system is available as a self-installed software package and also comes preinstalled on many hosting servers. From the cPanel interface, manage virtually all aspects of your hosting server, including security. Part of the security features available through cPanel include the ability to block websites from being accessed by certain users. Users are blocked by Internet Protocol address, a unique identifying number assigned to any computer that accesses the Internet.

  • Log in to cPanel by launching your Web browser, then typing in the login page address in the address bar and press "Enter." Type your cPanel username and password into the displayed text fields and click "OK."

  • Click the "IP Deny Manager" icon under the "Security" section.

  • Type the IP address of the user you wish to block into the "IP Address or Domain" text field. If you have a blog installed on your hosting server, typically find the IP address of the user you wish to block in the comments area, next to their username.

  • Click the "Add" button to block your website from being accessed by the particular IP address. The blocked IP address displays at the bottom of the screen.
