One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an illustration, 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 notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
