I was working on my wordpress site today . Logged out then couldnt log in again. A short time later,. my son's tablet was logged out unexpectedly. I coudlnt get back onto WP so I contacted Hostpresto and got this reply

Thank you for contacting support.

Your IP had become blocked by the servers firewall for Wordpress login by spam host from **my I[P address**. I've removed this block now and you should be able to connect now.

Your ISP's IP address is currently on a global blacklist, we currently block access to wp-admin/wp-login.php from blacklisted IP addresses for security reasons..
Hostpresto gave me a link to look at (cant post t cos it has my IP within it and it said my IP address is blocked on two globalblacklists .
Ive clicked the link and it said something about Spamhaus Zen and SORBS DUHL.

In simple terms.... WOSSITM,EAN?? All okay and logged in without interruption and working as per usual now

Does serpclix make you use a vpn of any kind?

I would be surprised if it was because of that but I just don’t know anything about how they work / the type of work

The only problem I've had so far with Serpclix is I don't think Google like me searching so much (I keep having to prove I'm not a robot). All we are doing is excessive unusual google searching, so I don't see why that would mean our IP's would get blocked.

I've just googled Spamhaus and you can put your IP address in here (or google Spamhaus Lookup)and it tells you what you are blocked on. I am blocked on one but it says

" This IP address range has been identified by Spamhaus as not meeting our policy for IP addresses permitted to deliver unauthenticated 'direct-to-mx' email to PBL users. "

so I don't think that is to do with Serpclix.

Yes, if

That means you've been banned on the sly. Yes it is still going. I'd recommend using a new email and trying again. It's possible your IP has been blacklisted but you've probably got a dynamic IP which may well have changed by now.

I got banned for a while, as my router went gumpy and was making it look like I was using a proxy. I also got banned from several survey sites for the same reason. I factory reset it and after a few weeks was able to resume searching. (And doing surveys)

Experienced the same 'IP blacklist' issue with HostPresto. Seems strange that this has never come up at any other website or online service before.
