But this only applies to the account domain, not any addon domains, correct?

If so, how do you block IPs from both individual addon domains, and ALSO how do you block them from all domains on an account?

If you want to block access across all sites, you would want to block the IP within cPanel which will write to a .htaccess file and affect all domains on the account.
