One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
account with our company and you want to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a very simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to do that is to log inside to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not need to do anything challenging if you would like to block an entire network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, since we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that is provided with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not dealt with this kind of matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, since our tool features a very user-friendly interface. As you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect straightaway, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally simple.
