Ban registration by IP country code


When someone registers there is the whois that shows the IP country. Love to be able to ban by country or name anyone registering from a country or name.

I am looking for something similar to this. My board is state specific, but I do get some legit members from other states in the US. It would be nice to be able to identify anyone attempting to register from outside North America, or at least outside the US and not allow them to register at all.

IP addresses don't work like that. One number is not specific to one country.

If you have a good, non-googleable Q&A question you won't have a problem.
