Find out more about IP blocking, why it could be so beneficial and when to use it.
One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting
accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you only need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts include a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few clicks and you won't have any problems to do that even if that's your first website hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll simply have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and do not enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
