One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting plan
from us, you'll be able to see comprehensive traffic stats for all your websites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to any of them aren't authentic, you can block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic through our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All the addresses you have blacklisted will appear inside the same section of the Control Panel, so that you can always remove any one of them and permit it to access your Internet site again. You can block whole IP ranges via the tool as well - you simply need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few mouse clicks and you will not have any issues to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll simply have to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address inside a box which you'll see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
