This GEOIP extension from FME allows you to block bots & visitors of a specific country, region or IP(s) from accessing your Magento store. Block unnecessary visitors from other countries to refine your website traffic, prevent spamming, save server bandwidth and avoid orders from the locations where you don't serve.

You can restrict visitors from accessing your entire store, a store view, product(s), category or CMS pages. Hide a section or entire store from a region that is not contributing towards the revenues, but manipulates the traffic. Display either a custom message to the blocked users or redirect them to another page.



  • Restrict users by IP addresses, country, or region
  • Block users visiting the entire store, specifc products or categories
  • Display a message or redirect blocked users
  • Add IP Exceptions to white list user from a blocked location


Block Visitors from a Specific Country or Region

Restrict users of a specific country or region visiting your store to reach the communities who are really interested in your products or services. You can create access control lists that block users of a specific territory from visiting a store view, products, categories, or CMS pages.

Create Access Control Lists (ACL)

You can create as many Access Control Lists as you want to refine traffic to your online store. Write a custom title for each ACL, and configure blocking different sections of your website.

Restrict users visiting a store view or CMS page

Ban a selected group of users from visiting a store view of the CMS page to ensure the users do not ponder over a store view that is not meant for them.

Add country or region to ACL

Select a user group to block by adding countries from the list. You can select multiple countries & regions regions to ban them altogather.

IP Exceptions to overrule restrictions

Add IP addresses of users to give them an exception from restrictions. Configuring IP Exceptions overrule the ban on users, regardless of visiting from a restricted country or region. 


Restrict Your Entire Store, a Product, or Category

Stop users from visiting your entire store, a product, category, or a CMS page. Define rules to govern blocking users from specific products or categories on the basis of certain conditions.

Block your entire store for a region

Select a region and block them straight away from visiting any of your website pages. It allows you to prevent hacking, bot attack and spamming from unreliable regions. 

Set conditions for blocking products and categories

Set various conditions to restrict users’ access to a set of products or categories. Let the relevant and targeted users browse your store items.


Display A Message Or Redirect Blocked Users

You can either display a custom message or redirect the blocked users to a more relevant page they can benefit. It allows you to mitigate disappointment among the users for not accessing a product or category.

Compose a Custom Message

With a WYSIWYG editor, you can compose and format an appealing message to the blocked users. It may communicate a reason like "Sorry, this product is not available in your region" or anything else you want.

Configure redirection

Set redirection for the blocked users that take them to a more relevant page of your store. For example, setting redirection of Asians to land on a category page meant for them.
