One of the most effective approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to see comprehensive traffic statistics for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to any of them are not authentic, you'll be able to block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is quite simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All of the addresses that you have blacklisted will appear inside the exact same section of the CP, allowing you to always remove any of them and allow it to access your site again. You could block whole IP ranges through the tool also - you simply 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 feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with no more thana couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first hosting account. When you navigate to 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 input the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type anything inside 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.
