ASPS Check Referrer

The ASPS Check Referrer module controls access to protected sections of your web site.

This add-on is available for all popular CMS such as Drupal, Joomla, Moodle and WordPress.

How It Works

This plugin restricts access from outside links (referrers) by IP address and/or domain name. It can be used to allow access from nominated IP addresses or domains of the referrer.

  • Restrict referrer access by IP address and/or domain name.
  • Allow access to referrers by IP address and/or domain name.
  • Specify which pages are to be protected using full link.
  • Specify which sections to be protected by name or part thereof.
  • Admin account is exempt from rules for proof-reading and testing.

Although designed for general use by CMS sites, this plugin is recommended for use by ASPS Protected Hosting clients to restrict access to web pages intended for copy protection.


To test this add-on as an ordinary user you need to use a non-admin account.
