One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our Linux cloud web hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with simply several mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. In case you wish 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 feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any problems to achieve that even if this is your first hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
