One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a Linux shared web hosting service from us, you will be able to see in depth traffic statistics for all your websites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to any of them are not authentic, you may block the IP addresses that have generated the most traffic via our IP Blocking tool. The interface is incredibly simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All the addresses which you have blacklisted shall appear inside the exact same section of the CP, so that you can always remove any of them and allow it to access your website again. You are able to block entire IP ranges using the tool as well - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box which you'll see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything within 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.
