One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a rather simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete that is to log in to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You shall not need to do anything difficult if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. All blocked IPs will be listed inside 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 Servers
You shall be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, considering the fact that we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not tackled this type of matters in the past, you shall not have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added within the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is pick the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect straightaway, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is just as simple.
