One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all website hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses at some point, you are able to take advantage of the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we've included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With just several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block individual IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you'll need to do is choose any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the Internet site, and then type the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you simply have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address with regards to the size of the network that you want to block. All the addresses that you have restricted shall be listed inside the exact same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you'll be able to do it with simply a click anytime.
