One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud website hosting accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with simply a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose 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 that you've added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with our Linux semi-dedicated servers, will allow you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you could add IP addresses with several clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have within the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just have to select the one you need and then input the IP address which should be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you just need to input the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to input them by hand. Considering that all the IPs which you add in this section shall be listed, you may easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
