One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a pretty simple interface, you could stop 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 within to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not have to do anything difficult if you'd like to block a whole network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with only a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwelcome traffic to any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we offer a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is provided with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you haven't dealt with this sort of matters in the past, you won't have any difficulties, considering that our tool has a very user-friendly interface. When you check out the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains you have added within 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 type in the IP inside the box below. The change will 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 quick.
