Restrict cPanel access to IP address or Country

Allow cPanel users to lock access to their cPanel account to one or more IP addresses (perhaps even CIDR ranges) and/or by geoip country codes.

While this won't guarantee protection against unauthorised access, it will prevent many casual attacks.

We just had an issue with a client, a attacker has accessed their webmail from a Nigerian IP and the attacker has created a mail forwarder.

Restricting access to cPanel by country is a necessary security measure.

Thank you.


I would love to see this feature too. Most of our clients are in a single country. If we can restrict cpanel access by country, would greatly add security level in the server.
