One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud plans feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do so with just several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya couple of clicks and you won't have any troubles to achieve that even if that is your first website hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and don't type in 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.
