One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting offer an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your websites, it shall be able to do so with only several mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. As soon as you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few mouse clicks and you won't have any problems to accomplish that even if that is your first website hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and do not type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
