One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting
account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a really simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log within to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything challenging if you wish to block a whole network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168. All blocked IPs shall be listed in the same exact section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with only a click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts include a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplyseveral clicks and you shall not have any troubles to accomplish that even if that is your first hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and don't enter anything within 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.
