Enabling or disabling the Online Control Panel IP Login rate limit

As an important security measure we automatically restrict an IP address from logging into an Online Control Panel if it has already accessed another one within the last ten minutes.

Why it may be necessary to disable the IP Login rate limit

We recognise that this ten minute login rate limit can, in some circumstances, be inconvenient. For example, if you have a lot of names.co.uk accounts that you manage, you may sometimes need to login to them one after the other during the course of your day to day duties.

As a result, we have made it possible for this security feature to be disabled on an account by account basis.

How to enable or disable the IP Login rate limit

Once logged in to your Control Panel, from the main page menu select Account and then Security Settings from the drop down list

The IP login rate limit section of the account security page will prevent this account being logged into by anyone that has already been logged in to another account within the last 10 minutes. This is a toggle which has no save button, you can switch the toggle to Yes or No and exit the page with confidence that your change has been updated.
