One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a huge 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 cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting from our company, you'll be able to see detailed traffic stats for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to any of them aren't legitimate, you are able to block the IP addresses that have created the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All the addresses you have blacklisted will show up in the exact same section of the CP, allowing you to always remove any one of them and permit it to access your Internet site again. You are able to block entire IP ranges through the tool as well - you just have to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplya couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if that is your first web hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just need to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and do not type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
