One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all website hosting
accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just several mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, as you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you just have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few clicks and you won't have any issues to do that even if that is your first website hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for an entire network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
