Why is the collection of website data by python crawler often restricted by ip access?

Posted March 1, 2021 267 views

When I was collecting website data, I was often prompted to restrict ip access. I am using the ip address of the free trial. Should I buy more ips to make a list?

Hi @leyte948,

Can you please give a little bit more information? Were you the one that was doing the restriction or other websites that you were crawling were restricting the IP from which you were executing the script?

If other websites were restricting your IP Address it’s possible they’ve decided your crawler is a sort of DDOS thus blocking it.
