One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all web hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with several clicks. No coding abilities are required, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from to, you only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
