Moderate New Registrations Based On IP Geographical Origin

vB Version: 3.7.5 Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 89
Released: 09 Dec 2008 Last Update: 11 Feb 2009 Downloads: 379
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files External Content  

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 works with 4.0.x.

You MUST download the zone files from this site:

http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/

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.

Changelog:

12/20/2008
  • Coded the routine in, instead of using external whois program.
  • Now compatible with Windows
  • (39 download of 1.0)
2/11/2009
  • 77 downloads at this point
  • Rewrote application to use zone files rather than relying on Arin
To upgrade, READ THE README, and re-install product (select overwrite).

Don't forget to:

One solution might be to use the free MaxMind GeoLite Country database locally on your server and run the IP queries against that instead of Arin.net

They also have the free GeoLite City with more resolution, plus a remotely hosted Javascript version you could connect to:

Both have 99.5% accuracy on a Country level, and GeoLite City has 79% on a city level. So there may be something there you can work with.

Ok, I have rewrote this application to use zone files. You need to download these files here:

http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/

(choose the all files download).

Their free license prohibits me from including them, plus, you might as well get the most up to date version.

I'll start off by saying I'm not gay.


But I think I love you.

//installed.


10-20 bots an hour into moderation.


I love it.


You have no idea how many spam preventing addons we use, and a few still trickle in.

This used to be a fantastic little plugin stopping ALL spam by restricting certain country IP's, however, just installed it since our upgrade to 4.1.10 and it no longer seems to be working properly, or at least causing registration problems...

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/plugins/whois.php on line 33

...when's its disabled registrations work again, anyone got any ideas?

Just curious, is this working in 4.2?
Should this be added or duplicated to go in the 4.0 mods if it is??
