One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all hosting accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, as you shall 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'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like 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 feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with justseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any issues to accomplish that even if that is your first web hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and do not type in anything in the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
