I'm sure there is a solution posted somewhere on the forum. called GeoIP or something
Can anybody tell me herehow can I block visitors from certain countries to use my proxies??
I am getting lots of visitors from Arab countries and it is just waste of bandwidth Because this traffic does not generate any revenue.
Plus I am using glype script and a cpanel hosting.
You can use block a country, block by ip address, deny access by country and it produces a list you can cut and paste into your htaccess file.
Probably the simplest solution for newbies
Have a read through these, should get you started in the right direction.

If you want to go with htaccess blocking, there's another alternative which I think is a little more accurate compared to the Blockacountry Lists:
I think last time I used blockacountry my IP range was incorrectly listed as china.

I finally got around to using geoip. It was simple once I got the hang of it. Looked intimidating at first, so I procrastinated for ages on trying it out.
