IP ban is a block setup by a server to reject request made from a particular IP or range of IP addresses. The IP ban may have been implemented automatically due to abuse pattern detected by the server or placed manually by an administrator. IP ban is implemented to protect the server from abuse such as brute force attacks, block emails from known spammers and limit usage by users. IP Ban allows a server to ban an IP address from accessing a website, forum, email or game server
If your user account is banned from a forum or game, it's different than IP ban. If you're using a service from a website or game provider, you'll have to abide by their rules and understand what you're violating. You may have unintentionally violated their terms, and hence you may have to contact the service provider and regain access to the service.
Website owners and service providers protect their users and assets by blocking abuses. If they detect an abuse, they may block an access to their website or service by banning IP address or blocking a user account. The best way to solve this problem is to abide by providers' rules and terms.
