iq block for wordpress.com

  1. Hi,

    I would be pleased if my request could be attended.. here's the following:

    I've been deeply searching on how to block specific countries from accessing my wordpress blogs and I found out there's a plugin called "iq block" only available for wordpress.org

    That's not fair! We should be able to chose which countries and regions we want to display our content! I really need that for security purposes.
    Can anyone help? I don't want to block ips, that requires lots of work on searching the entire country ip's, I need it very urgently. Please help!

    Att

    The blog I need help with is yvkx.co.uk.

  2. That's NOT not possible here at WordPress.com. Hire a web host and set up you own WordPress.org install.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate.

    1. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/
    2. Set up a WordPress.org install and equip it with a theme and plugins.
    3. Export your content out of your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into the install.
    4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from wordpress.com
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/ or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/
    5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/moving-your-subscribers/

  3. Additional information: If you want to install plugins of any kind then you will have to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install.

    There is not now nor has there ever been FTP access and blogger installed plugin capability on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase here that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins and or any third party themes.

    See here for a full comparison WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

    WordPress.com and WordPress.ORG have different logins. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
