One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud package from our company, you'll be able to see comprehensive traffic stats for all your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to each of them are not real, you'll be able to block the IP addresses which have produced the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is quite simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All of the addresses that you've blacklisted will appear inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so that you can always remove any of them and enable it to access your website again. You can block entire IP ranges using the tool also - you just need to leave 1 or 2 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 Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplya few mouse clicks and you won't have any troubles to do that even if that is your first website hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type 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 will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
