One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also prevent the possibility 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 us and you want to block one or several IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a really simple interface, you could 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 CP, to navigate 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 will not need to do anything complex if you wish 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 entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with justa couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any issues to achieve that even if that is your first hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and don't enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
