Blocking A Country Using Browser Language

Nov 3, 2008

I got a list of IPs from the country i want to block from 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).

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?

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.
