IP Filters are rules you can apply your records across multiple domains. If a user meets the requirement(s) of the filter, they will be answered with that record. Otherwise, they will be answered with the World/Default record.

You MUST have GeoIP services enabled for your domain in order to use IP Filters. 

After you have selected your domain, navigated to the ‘Advanced Settings’ menu. 

Select ‘Enabled GeoIP Services’. 

Important: Before you apply an IP Filter to a record, you must create a record of the same type that will be used to answer queries that don’t match your filter. Apply the World/Default IP Filter to that record. 

Please Note: IP Filter rules will supersede any Geo Proximity rules that are configured

1. In the sidebar menu click on Advanced and then select IP Filter from the drop-down menu.
