One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud website hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want 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 Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with justa few mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. When you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and do not type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
