One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of 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 many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with only several clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range as well. This can be performed 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 basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlyseveral clicks and you will not have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you check out 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 inside a box which you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and do not input anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
