One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all web hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with simply a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, due to the fact that 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 want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
