How to add Jetpack IPs to an allowlist

Allowing IP addresses in WordPress enables you to control who can (or cannot) access your website.

This article covers how to allowlist IPs for Jetpack, Jetpack Backup, and VaultPress, and shows our hosting requirements.

An allowlist is a list of IP addresses or domains that are provided privileged access or treatment. It is the opposite of a blocklist, which is intended to block or restrict access. Some hosting could use other words to identify the allowed IPs list on their systems. If you have questions, the recommendation is to contact your host support for more information.

Ask the hosting support to allowlist these IPs on their firewall:

  • 122.248.245.244/32
  • 54.217.201.243/32
  • 54.232.116.4/32
  • 192.0.80.0/20
  • 192.0.96.0/20
  • 192.0.112.0/20
  • 195.234.108.0/22

Using Jetpack with Cloudflare and/or Sucuri

By default, Cloudflare and Jetpack should require no additional configuration to operate together, if there are not any additional security configurations specified with Cloudflare.

If you are using Cloudflare (with additional security rules) or Sucuri, these are the ranges they accept:

  • 192.0.64.0/24
  • 192.0.65.0/24
  • 192.0.66.0/24
  • 192.0.67.0/24

  • 192.0.127.0/24

Important: These IP addresses are subject to change. If you are writing IP-based firewall rules, you’ll need to update those rules any time the addresses change. We also have machine-readable versions of these IP ranges in JSON and plain text format that you can use to automate configuration changes on your systems.

If you are using Cloudflare they also support only allowing traffic coming from servers with a specific AS number, in that case, you can allow the AS number 2635.

Allowlist IPs: VaultPress

The entire IP range from 192.0.64.1 ~ 192.0.127.254 needs to be added to the allowlist.

  • CIDR Notation: 192.0.64.0/18
  • GoDaddy Firewall & Sucuri use CIDR Notation.
  • Wordfence: 192.0.[64-127].[1-254]

Hosting Requirements

Generally, Jetpack works with any server that meets the requirements for WordPress itself, but there is some specific functionality that is used more in Jetpack than WordPress itself.

  • XML: The Jetpack connection and various features use PHP’s XML manipulation libraries. While this is part of PHP by default, it can be built without it and increasingly, we’re seeing some server environments needing a specific package installed.
    • If you’re seeing an error message related to PHP XML functionality, please install PHP’s XML module. Depending on your operating system, this can be done with a package manager: sudo apt-get install php-xml or sudo apt-get install php7.0-xml, sudo yum -y install php-xml or by building PHP without the --disable-xml flag.
    • If you are not skilled or confident to proceed, please ask your hosting support to install it for you.
  • Ability to perform outbound HTTPS requests to jetpack.wordpress.com and dashboard.jetpack.com.
