Whitelist IP Feature

As a cPanel User, I would like a feature that allows for the blacklist of all IP trying to connect directly to a specific domain. Instead, have the ability whitelist cloudflare only IP. For example, drop all connection (except connection from cloudflare) to example.com and http://www.example.com while allowing direct access to cpanel.example.com so that there will be less melicious traffic pass through.

I hope there's a feature that allows for the blacklist of all IP trying to connect directly to a specific domain. Instead, have the ability whitelist cloudflare only IP.


For example, drop all connection (except connection from cloudflare) to example.com and http://www.example.com


It'll also be nice to see whitelist/blacklist on specific domains, since I don't use cloudflare for cpanel.example.com

This feature was declined, Reason: Hello, This feature already exists in cPanel: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/78Docs/IP+Blocker If this feature does not meet your ask, please resubmit your updated Feature Request idea.


HOWEVER, ip blocker does not address the issue of only white listing. IP blocker also cannot be domain dependent. Let's say there's three subdomains, http://www.example.com, example.com and cpanel.example.com. I simply cannot use IP blocker to block all access but cloudflare to http://www.example.com and example.com while allowing direct access of cpanel.example.com.
