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