One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites 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 produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to see in depth traffic statistics for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a considerable amount of the visits to each of them aren't legit, you can block the IP addresses that have produced the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is incredibly simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted will appear in the exact same section of the CP, so you can always remove any one of them and allow it to access your Internet site again. You could block entire IP ranges through the tool too - you simply need 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
You will be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwelcome traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, as we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is offered with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't addressed this kind of matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, because our tool has a very user-friendly interface. Once you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP in the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
