Can wildcards be used to block a range of IP addresses in Cpanel, or can we just leave the last number off? Like:
66.23.100.
or
66.23.100.*

Hello,

Thanks for the question about using wildcards to block IP ranges. If you're not familiar with IP ranges, then you shouldn't try to block IPs using a wildcard. IP addresses are not directly sequential, so you can't use a wildcard to indicate a range. You may see it expressed like this: 66.23.100.0/16 or 66.23.100.0/24. Those are ranges of IPs. You can see more information on blocking IP addresses here.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Regards,
Arnel C.
