IP restriction page

The IP restriction page appears when a reader tries to access the Knowledge base site URL from any restricted IP address.

For example, if you have restricted the Knowledge base site to appear only for a particular IP range and a reader tries to access the site from an IP not included in the range, the IP restriction page appears

Customize the IP restriction page of your knowledge base site and provide a descriptive reason with a solution, such as 'Contact the admin for access'. This would allow the readers to understand the reason and solution.

You cannot switch back to your default IP restriction page after configuring a custom IP restriction page. It is recommended to have a custom IP restriction page to enhance the reader experience.
