One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with a few clicks. No coding skills are needed, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want 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 will take only a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few clicks and you will not have any problems to accomplish that even if that is your first website hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
