One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a rather simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log in to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to select a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You shall not need to do anything difficult if you would like to block a whole network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the undesirable traffic to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us, since we offer you a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't dealt with this sort of problems in the past, you will not have any difficulties, considering that our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP in the box below. The change will take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally easy.
