One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our Linux shared website hosting services
provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with only a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplya couple of clicks and you shall not have any problems to achieve that even if that is your first hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only have to choose the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199.
