CURL & file_get_contents throttling issues

    Hello!

    I host with a company that uses litespeed and I've noticed that my own localhost IP address is being throttled by litespeed's anti-ddos measures.

    CURL connections come back with this error:
    Recv failure: Connection reset by peer

    And if I attempt to connect to any site not found on localhost the connections go through ok.

    How can I help my hosting provider allow me to make connection requests without the risk of being throttled.

    ps. I do not know how long it takes, but eventually the tempban lifts and my connections start working again.

    Hi and thank you for the help!

    So I could add 127.0.0.1 / localhost to the allowed list and I shouldn't see any tempbans on localhost? Or do I need to go further and ask for the server IP to be added as well?

    you can identify which IP in access log.
    "curl http://a.com"
    if you can access virtual host a.com's access log, it can tell which IP is used to access http://a.com
