Setting Up a Blacklist in the SpamFireWall Option

 

The SpamFireWall option has its own lists so you can control who can access your website and who can not.

Any spambot will be seeing a block screen by CleanTalk while a real visitor will be redirected to your website within 1 second.

 

1. First of all, go to your Anti-Spam Dashboard and click the menu "Tools" then select "Personal Lists".

2. After that go to the "SpamFireWall" tab.

3. Now press the button "Add New Filter" or "Import CSV" to start adding your IPs you want to blacklist or whitelist.

Then select what websites your list will be applied to and press the button "Blacklist" or "Whitelist".

You can also add subnets to your list. They look like IPs with masks.

Examples: 5.5.9.9/30, 120.7.7.55/28, 177.252.99.85/32

 

*Please note that White Lists feature is available in plugins released after 06/01/2020.

 

4. The same could be done to countries. Change the type of filter to "Country". Then select what countries should be blocked.

Use other drop-down menus to set up the filter and press the button "Add".

5. The result table will contain everything you added. If you want you can download the table as a file in the CSV format.

Take a closer look at the column "7 Days Hits". If anyone was trying to visit your website from the IP or country from your table you will see a number different than 0 and you can press it to see the details.
