The idea is to ban or allow certain countries from accessing a droplet. Most of the problems we have are always from the same sources, thieves, bots, scanners, crawlers, scammers, spammers, you name it.. OR simply people from countries to whom you don´t want to do business. If we could block or allow certain countries right from the beginning it would be much easier to keep the servers safe and at low resource consumption. Good for all, for DO and for sys admins.
Accessto a good geoip fresh database costs money, if DO could provide this feature and cache the responses we all could benefit.
