    If you have more than one domain you better block them at server level since spam once spam twice.

    You can restrict access to a certain IP via htaccess, if server supports it:

    order allow,deny
    
    deny from 123.456.789.0
    deny from 123.456.789.1
    
    allow from all
    Code (markup):

    You can either do it through your server, as mentioned above, or if you want to do it via vBulletin you simply go to the settings/options and under user banning options, enter the IP in the Banned IP addresses field.

    We do use IP banning on our VB forum, and yes there is settings for that exactly like Econox said. There are lot of options under settings, just have another look, you will find it.
