One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud hosting
accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with simply a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, as you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the same section and whitelisting each of them will take only a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you only need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with justseveral mouse clicks and you will not have any difficulties to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box which you'll see there and you will be good to go.

For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not type anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
