One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet 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 numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting
accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with just several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, because you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address 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 simply a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with no more thana couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. Once you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
