One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites 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 produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Hosting
If you have a hosting
account with our company and you wish to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a very simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete that is to log within to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You won't need to do anything complicated if you wish to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplya few mouse clicks and you will not have any troubles to achieve that even if this is your first website hosting account. Once you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just need to pick 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 good to go. To limit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not type in anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
