One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting from our company, you will be able to see in depth traffic stats for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to each of them aren't legit, you are able to block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic through our IP Blocking tool. The interface is very simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All the addresses you have blacklisted shall appear in the very same section of the Control Panel, so that you can always remove any of them and enable it to access your site again. You'll be able to block whole IP ranges through the tool as well - you just have to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with justa few mouse clicks and you shall not have any issues to accomplish that even if that is your first website hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll only need to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not input anything inside 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.
