Block visitors from countries you don't want on your website. Based on which country an ip address is from.
It works and its easy to use.
As others have said, it would be useful to be able to select a WHITELIST of countries and have the plugin select the non-requested countries automatically. It would also be easier to have certain "geographic zones" selected with a single click, rather than having to select every country individually. I have chosen NOT to downgrade the plugin for this shortcoming.
The tools area was useful in discovering that many attacks are launched from countries I would have considered "safe", and leads me to make a suggestion for an improvement.
Would it be possible to use crowd sourced feedback from all the copies of this plugin installed worldwide to collect a list of IP addresses that routinely probe WordPress backends, and use that information to SUGGEST IP addresses that should be added to the blacklist, regardless of country?
Easy and fast. Works as advertised.
10x works great!
Works as entended
Works as it is supposed to.
This plugin works really well. It has stopped large amounts of spam coming through to my sites.
The support from the author is amazing and very quick.
If you're looking for a plugin that in literally few steps will block visitors from any country you select from accessing your website (being it frontend, backend or both!), then you couldn't find better solution! iQ country blocker works great and is very simple to use!
I am very pleased at this time with the performance of the plugin. After installing the plug-in I had over 14 blocks the first day from countries I didn't want to share my website with.
If there was one recommendation I'd have is to be able to reverse the selections and choose which countries I want to see my site and not go through a huge list, or ones I don't want. Its such a minor item compared to the huge plus and benefit this plugin offers.
This is my first review of a plug-in for WordPress. I made it a point to join and register just so I can post this.
Excellent plug-in that works as advertised. You can prove it to yourself by attempting to view your website via a foreign proxy server.
