1) ipfilterHTX will completely ban an enemy from reaching my website/s ?
- ipfilterHTX (As .htaccess Deny Rules) will block visitors coming from the IPs banned.
Deny rules are therefore made to reject the IP banned requests but this doesn’t mean that an IP blocked can’t still reach your server via a ping for example.
The Visitor IP denied will receive a “Forbidden” 403 error instead of normal pages.
2) All ipfilterX IP ranges are banned in ipfilterHTX ?
-Absolutely not, a large .htaccess file can make your website sluggish due to the number of rules that your server has to process each time it has to deliver your site’s pages.
Hence ipfilterHTX blocks only most annoying and static recurrent IPs .
3) There are free Deny Rules in some website why we shouldn’t use that ?
-For the same reason that you won’t use overbloated blocklists , not updated , and maintained only to write something on certain security websites oldest than the Charlot’s Jacket .
