One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a really simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform that is to log within to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You will not have to do anything challenging if you'd like to block an entire 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 will be listed in the same exact section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, considering the fact that we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that's part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have never addressed this sort of problems in the past, you will not have any difficulties, since our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. Once you check out the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added within the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP within the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
