Account IP blocking. The primary purpose of account IP blocking is to prevent the system from logging a specific set of IP addresses. By specifying one or more IPs under “My Account > General Settings”, an account owner can block the specified IPs from being detected by the website visitor tracker. This function allows to save the log space and avoid capturing unnecessary traffic log data.
Generally, this IP blocking feature is used to prevent the system from logging website owner’s activity. However, other uses include but not limited to prevention of logging undesired traffic such as that generated by unknown bots, automation appliances that visit specific pages of an automation websites and activity of other computers for which the activity data is not required.
Visitor IP blocking. This feature is used to block specific IPs or an IP range from being able to access a website content. This is accomplished via using a Page Tracker and a Link Tracker tools.
