IP Locking

If you enable IP Locking, you’ll be able to access your account only from the IP address you’re now logged in as. You must use the same IP address every time you log into your account in the future. This is only recommended if you are confident that your IP address will not change and that you will access your account from the same IP address at all times.

You’ll get the following message if you try to access your site from a different IP address. To change your IP address, go to this website.

ip address reset
You’ll then be led to a page where you can either input your primary email address or a previously saved auth code. If you give us your email address, we’ll send you a long authentication code that looks like this:

Enter this code at the link provided in the email. You’ve been redirected to the next page.

Select the length of time you want to authorize the current IP address, then click the Authorize! button. A success message appears, advising you of the new IP address’s expiration date.
