  • [Forum] Can I stop certain domains registering?

    Recently getting a lot of spam registration on my forum. The vast majority have a .vn domain (Vietnam?) and I wondered if it's possible to stop this particular domain from registering?

    Yes, under options it has banned email, and banned ip address sections. If you simply put .vn no one from Viet nam will be able to register I banned the entire Phillipine islands it got so bad. LOL I used the new question/answer to fight spam, make people look up something in relation to what your sites about. Most spammers wont go through the trouble for a penny a post

        OK.....I put .vn in the exclusion box and still got registrations :-( Changed it so that anything with .vn was banned but still getting registrations!

            You were adding

            @vn

            under AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> User Banning Options and also activated Aggressive Email Banning?
