One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most 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 shall also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our Linux shared hosting plans
offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your websites, you will be able to do so with simply a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature 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 onlya couple of mouse clicks and you will not have any troubles to achieve that even if this is your first web hosting account. As soon as you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
