One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a pretty simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log inside to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You won't have to do anything challenging if you want 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 shall be listed within the same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses sooner or later, you may leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you'll be able to block particular IPs or entire ranges, if required. All you will need to do is pick out any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the Internet site, and then type the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you just have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address with regards to the size of the network that you want to block. All of the addresses you have restricted will be listed inside the exact same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with only a click at any time.
