Hey there web host experts,

I recently got a new VPS and running Nginx on it, I would like to know how can I block certain IPS using Nginx and send the blocked ips to a redirected page or something elese?

Please provide the methods or tips.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Kaz Wolfe,
To block IP in nginx edit nginx.conf file, enter:
Code:
cd /usr/local/nginx/conf/
vi nginx.conf
* The location of this file nginx.conf may change according to your installation.

Add the following line in http section:
Code:
 include blockips.conf;
Save and close the file. Now create the file blockips.conf in /usr/local/nginx/conf/, enter:
Code:
vi blockips.conf
Append / add entries as follows:
Code:
deny xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
deny xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
Save and close the file. Test the config file, enter:
Code:
/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx -t
Sample outputs:
the configuration file /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf syntax is ok
configuration file /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf test is successful

Reload the new config, enter:
Code:
/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx -s reload
You can explore the nginx guide at this link: https://www.nginx.com/resources/admin-guide/

@compacta it is pretty complex to me, is there a way to do it without commands, I would do via an user friendly interface. Is it possible? what software can I install on nginx to block any IPs?

It does not appear the OPs specific question was answered.

If the geo mod is installed you can use the following to redirect the IP to another URL:

Code:
geo $bad_user {
  default 0;
  1.2.3.4/32 1;
}

server {
  if ($bad_user) {
    rewrite ^ http://www.nicetry.com/punk.html;
  }
}
Or if you use:
Code:
server {
    if ($remote_addr = 1.2.3.4) {
        rewrite ^ http://www.nicetry.com/punk.html;
    }
   ...
}
