One of the most reliable approaches 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. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a lot 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 almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared web hosting
accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the very same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you only have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplya few mouse clicks and you won't have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you go to 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 enter the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for an entire network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and don't type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
