One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a rather simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log inside to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not have to do anything complex if you'd like to block an entire network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole 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 one of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, because we offer a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not dealt with such matters in the past, you won't have any difficulties, since our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you check out the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is pick the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
