One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company, you shall be able to see in depth traffic stats for all your websites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to any of them aren't authentic, you are able to block the IP addresses that have generated the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses that you have blacklisted will show up in the exact same section of the CP, so you're able to always remove any of them and permit it to access your website again. You could block entire IP ranges through the tool also - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. As an example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplyseveral mouse clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will just need to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not input anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
