LionScripts: IP Blocker Lite

Description

LionScripts IP Blocker for WordPress allows you to block the malicious IP Addresses, Spammers and Hackers. You can block IP addresses by either using the manual blocking method or the Bulk IPs Blocking feature.

By blocking the Unwanted or Spammy IP Addresses, you can prevent hacking attempts and brute-force login attacks on your wordpress website.

Hackers do the brute-force login attacks very often to gain the access to your website, which may become a negative signal to the shared hosting service provider for your website, leading to the account suspension too, if not taken care of very soon. Some of the folks got their hosting accounts banned from their shared hosting provider as the hacking attempts consumes server resources very hugely and impacts the performance of other user accounts on the same shared server. If you are using some cloud based services like AWS EC2 or Google Cloud Machine for hosting, then such hacking attempts eats-up the bandwidth, resources and increases the number of hours of usage & eventually the server bills significantly. But there’s no need to worry now. That’s exactly what the LionScripts IP Blocker resolves.

The blocked IPs won’t be able to scrap the precious content too from your WordPress Site. You can choose to either display the blocked message or an empty page to the blocked users. To do so, you can just add the IP Address to the blocking list and anytime you can delete that IP from the blocking list if you know that it’s not performing malicious activities.

The auto block function will block white listed IP's so it blocks you from your own website even though you are using static white listed IP. Asked developers for a refund or for them to fix this. They refused refund and have not fixed the plugin so the pro version for me has been a waste of money as I cannot use it and they have not fixed it. I even provided a video to show the issues but they are now just ignoring my emails so will have to use another solution and accept that I have lost my money. Would not recommend.

I tried using this on different websites and it does not work! I contacted the developer hoping they would respond with a fix and all they said is that it works. I requested them to take a look and fix it and they have not responded and it's been several days. The bottom line, this plugin DOES NOT work! Save your time and use a different plugin!

The free version did not work. I can still see spammers try to log into admin.

i love the simplicity of ip blocker. it is just like what i studied in my school that hiding the unwanted option from users is a symbol of good software.

WordPress is not best in terms of security, and the best way to monitor an "important" is ip blocker pro, as it also handles the intruders who don't leave trails behind, and attack login area. The first criteria, a very very very strong password, like 18 characters with symbols numbers and special characters, + firewall, are a must, but if the site is really precious I would suggest installing their ip blocker pro version. consider strongly to get at least a VPS, and monitor events from inside the server on a regular basis, and discuss with their support team in case you need any doubts clarification. If your site does not contain any precious information and also don't need features like blocking countries, auto ip-blocking, wildcard ips, ipv6, temporarily blocking & admin panel protection etc., then the ip blocker lite version is sufficient.
