One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans
include an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you will just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks as well, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your sites. If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with simply a click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwanted traffic to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, since we offer a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is offered with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have never tackled such problems in the past, you won't have any difficulties, because our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added within the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP in the box below. The change will take effect at once, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
