One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared plans come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with just several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is super easy to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, 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 Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justa couple of mouse clicks and you will not have any difficulties to accomplish that even if this is your first website hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll simply have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and don't type anything within 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.
