One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting services
come with an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your sites, it shall be able to do so with just several mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and visit 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 should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with justa few mouse clicks and you shall not have any troubles to achieve that even if that is your first hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't input anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
