One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared website hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, due to the fact that you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplya couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any troubles to do that even if that is your first hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 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.
