    is it possible to block traffic from selected referral sites?

    Would like to know if there's a script to prevent traffic from selected referral sites? thanks in advance!

    Can we use Cpanel's IP Deny Manager for this purpose? Does it block referral traffic from the denied domain IP?

    No, the IP deny manager is to block access from predetermined IPs, it's not dynamic. You should consider using the hotlink protection feature and deny access based on the refering URL. Keep in mind, this can be spoofed. Also, be sure to check the rules/conditionals it adds, because Cpanel is too stupid to add the initial check to see if there was even a referer in the first place (maybe they fixed that by now--who knows).

    <LimitExcept GET>
    Order Allow,Deny
    allow all
    deny from spammer.com
    deny from (some IP)
    </LimitExcept>
