Blocking A Country

Apr 14, 2007

I had a few sites hacked today. I'm using phpbb (all updates) and, apparently, the only thing they did was to drop the database and replace it with one featuring a single post "advertising" their hacker group. I tried bringing everything back on-line, but they would just attack again and take it down quickly... I'm thinking it's probably just some script kiddies.

They announce themselves as "turkish hackers". Browsing around for their message, I found they attacked quite a few sites. What I was thinking, to help preventing this from happening again, is to ban all visitors from Turkey (none of these sites has a need for them, as they're aimed at a local audience).

Can I do this simply by using "deny from .tr" in htaccess? Or are there any more steps to be taken?

Blocking A Country Using Browser Language

Nov 3, 2008

I got a list of IPs from the country i want to block from blockacountry.com and i added them to my .htaccess as I have no access to PF or IP tables firewall.

I am concerned about the server load if I get too many requests from that country to access the webpage, I have been told of a better solution, blocking someone based on the browser language they use, for example for China that is "zh-CN" but I don't know how to implement this and I have not been able to find it through Google, help with this appreciated.

Second thing, anyone knows what happens when someone attempts to access a webpage from a blocked IP? Do they get a "Page not found" or "your IP is blacklisted" message?

If I block by browser language it would be good if the blocking message does not tell the user about this

(Notice that I am aware that blocking by browser language is not a perfect solution).

Host Outside My Own Country

Nov 2, 2008

Just joined sitepoint forums so Hi everybody

I am very new to web design and have been messing around making mock sites and would like to get some of them live so I can get experience with using host's and get some reviews on my basic designs.

I have just relocated to New Zealand and it seems pretty steep on pricing for hosting companies so can I use hosting companies outside of NZ.

What would be the disadvantages if any?

I am not after anything special like loads of bandwidth or storage.

Server With PA/PI IPs (Own Netname + Country)

Oct 25, 2009

Are there hosters that do that?

Best would be European.

i know that i.e. Hetzner gives you PA Space with your own Netname ("netname:" field) (maybe also own Adress) but they dont allow to change the "country:" field, and it stays "DE"

I would like to have a block of 8/16/32 IPs with own "Netname:" field, and own "Country:" field (or as Countrycode "CN", "HK", "AG", "BS" or "KY")

Could Provide P.O. Boxes in all that countrys if needed.

The Server behind it does not really matter, location should be not Germany and not USA (cant comply with some Laws in this 2 Countrys) - something like 1Ghz CPU, 80Gb HDD, 512Mb Ram is enough - 100Mbit (or 10Mbit Burstable) with ~350Gb Traffic.

What Country To Locate This VPN Server In

Oct 21, 2007

I am in the process of setting up a VPN server for a client who lives in a Middle Eastern country.

He will be using the VPN for all his internet surfing, email access, etc. (So the VPN will be his internet gateway. His local ISP connection will only be used to make the VPN connection.)

The majority of his internet surfing through the VPN will be to US websites.

Where is the best place to locate the VPN server? I have two datacenters available to choose from: USA or UK

Block All Visitors From Country X

Oct 5, 2007

I have experianced a number of attacks all from a specific country.

I would like to completely block access to all users from that country.

I realize that this is not fool proof because people from that country could still use a proxy.

I also realize that people in that country that are not hackers would not be able to access my web site but for the time being I still want to put this in place.

I use Linux / Cpanel / Apache. I have iptables installed.

Is there any way I can block all access to people from the problem country?

Why Country Specific Hosting Is Important For Marketing

Jul 3, 2009

Something not many people know when choosing a web host is the importance of choosing a host that will aid your marketing and your websites niche. This can be very important if you are running an online store depending on the geographic region you are focusing on. So first lets start with an explanation of why this all depends on who your sites visitors will be.

Most internet connections are very fast but it still matters where the physical server is hosted in terms of speed. If I was starting an online store focusing on customers in Texas the site is going to server faster to people from Texas if it is in Texas. Similarly if you are building a site aimed at United Kingdom residents you dont want the server to be in the United States or even Europe in some cases. By hosting in a location near your customer base you are speeding up their access time to the server. This might not seem like a big deal but in a number of studies the importance of a quick loading page can mean a big difference in the number of conversions. Or if you are hosting a game server ping time will obviously matter when you are shooting your next zombie.

In terms of marketing it is also important in the eyes of Google and other search engines. One of the many factors for knowing whether they should rank you in a country specific search engine is dependent on your IPs location as well as your domain name ending. By using a host in the country your site is serving you is sending one more indication to Google of where you should be ranked.

We have had plenty of customers at UK2 who came to us from USA based hosting and after they started using our servers which are in the United Kingdom they found that conversions increased and they had lower shopping cart abandonment rates. Which when you are running an online store are two very key factors. This is also why we offer our customers dedicated server hosting in both the United Kingdom and USA, we want to be able to give them the best of both worlds.

Blocking EV1

Apr 5, 2007

I've had it with EV1. On any given day we get 30-50 BFD attacks from their servers. That doesn't include the dozens of other types of attempts per day our IPS/IDS catch. We've also traced back client servers that were hacked directly via EV1 servers.

It's obvious that EV1 does little or nothing to stop these issues. We spoke to the FBI about these issues and their comments lead me to believe that EV1 is one of the major sources of these issues and that EV1 has shown little or no effort to curb the problem or cooperate in stopping the issue.

We have elected to now block all all EV1 IPS.

Drastic measures, not really. If they won't take care of their own problems I no longer want them dumped at my door step. I think other hosts might want to think about this.

POP3 Blocking

Dec 3, 2006

I am hitting a limit on number of POP signons per hour imposed by my host. I host maybe 10 domains on this account and have 4 or 5 email addresses to monitor for each domain. If I check once every 15 minutes I run up against a limit on the number of POP3 signons permitted by my ip. Add this to having multiple mail clients behind a NAT router and I am beginning to have real problems.

Does anyone else have this issue? Is my only workaround to forward all email to a single account or install a local mail server? Does 100 POP signons an hour from a single IP sound like a lot to anyone? Any advice?
