This mod will put any new registration into moderation so you can either approve or deny based on the physical location of the IP address. If the IP is located in a country that you white list, the registration will go through as normal.

This may be different for everyone else, but on my forums, I have yet to have a Russian IP sign up for anything other than posting SPAM. This plugin has moderated them all!

I hope to have time to eventually expand this to do other things. This also works on 3.8.x.

You MUST download the zone files from this site:

The free license does not allow me to include them with the product, plus it is better to download the latest files anyway.

No real screenshots to show here, sorry.


  • Coded the routine in, instead of using external whois program.
  • Now compatible with Windows
  • (39 download of 1.0)
  • 77 downloads at this point
  • Rewrote application to use zone files rather than relying on Arin
  • Verified it works for 4.0
To upgrade, READ THE README, and re-install product (select overwrite).

Don't forget to:

Thanks for those, I has a few similar sources, but those are another two

There is no reason why you can't use those to generate your own zone files. As it is you only really need to keep the zone files up to date for countries you DONT want to filter out... Even then it's only for registration. So worst case some people need to be manually allowed through later.

Blocking at the .htaccess level means that no one from those locations can get any access, I don't see that as a viable solution.
