Before allowing our IPs, it is important to understand that a whitelist or allowlist is a strategy that approves certain IP addresses to access your domain. And it is only set and updated by the site administrator.
Unfortunately, there isn’t one step-by-step that will apply to all web servers. Because each server has its own way to whitelist IPs. We will explain the most used one which is apache and it is also used for WordPress sites.
For Apache serves, you can use something called a .htaccess file.
The .htaccess file is a basic configuration file. To access your .htaccess file, you can either:
- Connect to your site via FTP and look for it in the root folder
- Use cPanel’s File Manager tool (if your host uses cPanel)
When you connect via FTP, you will see the following image below:
When using the cPanel, you will do the following:
- Go to yourdomain.com/cpanel and log in.
- In the Files section, look for the “File Manager” icon. Click on it.
- After that, search for your hta.access
Please, make sure to save a copy of your original file before starting to edit your htacess.
You need to add to the file the following Ubersuggest IPs.
allow from 220.127.116.11
allow from 18.104.22.168
allow from 22.214.171.124
allow from 126.96.36.199
allow from 188.8.131.52
allow from 184.108.40.206
allow from 220.127.116.11
allow from 18.104.22.168
allow from 22.214.171.124
allow from 126.96.36.199
allow from 188.8.131.52
allow from 184.108.40.206
allow from 220.127.116.11
allow from 18.104.22.168
allow from 22.214.171.124
If you are using a WordPress domain, instead of digging into your htaccess file, there are also plugins available that can help you with that.
