One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web 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 a large number of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud web hosting
accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with only a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you basically have to enter 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 allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplya couple of mouse clicks and you shall not have any troubles to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within 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 example, if you input 123.123. and don't enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
