2. Then, enter your domain name, username, and password.

3. After that, click on the Login to Plesk or Login to cPanel button.

Warning: To remove the firewall, you must restore the original IP addresses of the DNS records.


b) How do I manually change DNS records in Sucuri Firewall ?

1. First, scroll to step two of the instructions for activating the website firewall.

2. Then, copy the second IP address in the gray box and log in to your host or registrar to access your domain’s DNS records.
