One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a rather simple interface, you are able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log within to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to select a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not need to do anything complex if you would like to block an entire network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with only a mouse click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, since we offer a really easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not addressed this kind of issues in the past, you will not have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. Once you go to the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added in the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is pick the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then input the IP in the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally uncomplicated.
