An Access Control List (ACL) is a safe sign-on measure that manages account access based on IP addresses. This extra layer of security tests the login against the user name, password, and the IP address(es) from which the login is attempted and prevents entry from non-specified IPs.
NOTE: This service is only available for Corporate accounts.
Common Use Cases for Access Control Lists
Access control lists are used to define which IP addresses or subnets a user will be allowed to access account information. They are set up to manage entry by binding an IP address to a user. If the user attempts to log in from another IP address, they will be blocked. This prevents suspicious access by allowing an additional identifier to be established for secure logins.
- You have a Corporate account
- The user has been added to the DNS Made Easy account
