One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting packages feature an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with a few clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, 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 Internet sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with our semi-dedicated hosting, will permit you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It features an IP blocking tool where you could add IP addresses with just a few mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have inside the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only need to pick the one you need and then type the IP address which should be blocked. If you wish to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just have to type the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to type in them manually. Considering that all the IPs you add in this section shall be listed, you could easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button associated with the particular IP.
