    Excuse my ignorance on the topic, but if you have a website and want to ban say..an entire city in the US from accessing it, would such a thing be possible?

    Thanks ahead of time to anyone who takes the time to answer.

    Specific cities maybe difficult with free databases. You can try the free one provided my Maxmind (PHP/Perl etc) or a paid service from a website like ip2location dot com.
