One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you will also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with only a few clicks. No coding abilities are required, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be performed 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 only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with justa couple of clicks and you won't have any problems to achieve that even if that is your first hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
