One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the chance of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with just a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with justa few clicks and you will not have any issues to accomplish that even if that's your first website hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't input anything in the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
