One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. By using a really simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You shall not need to do anything complicated if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same exact section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you wish to block one or several IP addresses at some point, you may benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we've provided with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block specific IPs or whole ranges, if needed. All you'll need to do is pick out any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, decide if the blocking needs to be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the Internet site, and then type the IP address you want to block. For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address based on the size of the network that you want to block. All of the addresses which you have restricted shall be listed in the same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with a click whenever you want.
