The significance of country blocking

AIOS’s country blocking feature lets you stop certain countries from accessing your site. Most malicious attacks come from a handful of countries, so it’s possible to prevent most attacks with this tool. Watch our tutorial video for a quick overview of how to set this up:

Key features of AIOS's country blocking

  • Controlled Access: Beyond just blocking countries, AIOS offers the flexibility to block access to specific pages or sections of your website. This ensures that only the desired audience can access certain content.

  • IP Whitelisting: For instances where access is required from blocked countries, AIOS allows specific IP addresses to be whitelisted, ensuring uninterrupted access for those users.

  • Redirect Blocked Visitors: you’re not just stopping visitors from blocked countries; you can also set a specific URL to redirect them to. You can then provide users with an explanation, or you could send them to their country-specific website. You can even send them back to their localhost by entering 

  • Selective Page Blocking: Instead of blocking the entire website, you can choose to block specific pages.
