One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all cloud hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply a couple of clicks. No coding skills are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few clicks and you shall not have any problems to achieve that even if this is your first web hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything within the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
