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 several reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a pretty simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete that is to log inside to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't have to do anything complex if you wish to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with no more thanseveral clicks and you will not have any difficulties to achieve that even if that's your first website hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and don't type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
