One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with simply several mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just have to type in 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 permit you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with no more thana few mouse clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and do not type anything within the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
