One of the most effective approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, since you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This may be completed 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 only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us and you need to block one or a number of IP addresses eventually, you may benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we have supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block certain IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you shall have to do is pick out any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the Internet site, and then type in the IP address you want to block. For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address in accordance with the size of the network which you want to block. All the addresses you have restricted will be listed within the same section and if you wish to whitelist any one of them, you will be able to do it with simply a click whenever you want.
