One of the most effective approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our website hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with a few mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. Once you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with justa few clicks and you will not have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
