One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from our company, you'll be able to see in depth traffic stats for all your websites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to each of them aren't legit, you are able to block the IP addresses which have produced the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is quite simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted shall appear inside the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any of them and allow it to access your site again. You are able to block whole IP ranges via the tool also - you just need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. As an example, 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, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with justseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't type in anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
