IP Address Blocking

WordPress.com VIP Platform

This document is for sites running on our WordPress.com VIP platform.


In general, WordPress.com VIP does not support system level IP address blocking. If your site is experiencing advertising-related abuse from a particular IP or block, we encourage you to work with your ad provider to resolve the issue or implement blocks. For comment abuse, please use the WordPress.com discussion moderation tools which include an IP blacklist.
