Allow the IPs of the services you use to access your website

We also recommend that you whitelist IP addresses of certain services (APIs, crawlers, payment providers, etc.) to access your site on a regular basis by creating an Access Rule.
To create an Access Rule, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Cloudflare Dashboard.
  2. Click the Firewall app in the top menu.
  3. Under Access Rules, enter the IP, IP range, or two-letter country code of the service you wish to whitelist.
  4. Select Whitelist in the drop down, add a label (i.e. Payment Gateway), and then click Add.
