Add Blacklist section in your security tab
The current server management console, has a n area where we can whitelist our IP address to avoid lockout problems. But could we also get for our servers a blacklist option?
There are multiple WordPress sites I manage. And you have no idea how many hacking attempts I get daily. Being able to block the ip addresses from where these attempts are coming from...could really help us secure our WP sites even more.

...and it would be great to have APIs to add/remove IPs to the blacklist (that could be integrated in our applications) - something like https://it.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-fail2ban/
Would like to see this as well!
I want this feature
Yes, +1 - If you have an attack, it would be nice to be able to add ip range to stop.
Please do this
This is really necessary.
If anyone has an idea of how to overcome the IP blacklist problem without having to copy
allow from all
block for each application in the .htaccess file will be great.
Cloudways had an announcement that IP blacklisting has been released but I can't find it in the management console.

I UPVOTE this idea!
This would be a very good feature to have in the Cloudways panel.
Please... why is there no word on this?
It’s been over 5 years since Avelardo made this very important suggestion, but not one word from Cloudways.
Hello Cloudways team, you got many thing right but why not this one?
As others said, pleeeeease give us the ability to block and unblock offending IPs.

Please implement this feature as soon as possible.
I'll have to switch to digital ocean soon if this feature is not available.
Please implement this feature, it would go very well alongside being able to whitelist. It feels kinda weird being able to add trusted sources but not being able to block harmful sources.
Also, please do this as a feature just as whitelisting, and NOT having us rely on further crappy WP plugins such as iThemes or Wordfence. Keep the platform clean, and let people use whatever plugins they want, but don't rely on these bloated monster plugins for basic stuff as firewall black-listing.

iThemes Security plugin has an option to blacklist IP's. Plus lots of great tools/settings to automatically blacklist them. It's worked great for us. Reach out to me, if you want help configuring it.
