One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many 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 many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting from us, you'll be able to see in depth traffic stats for all your sites and if you notice that a considerable amount of the visits to any of them are not real, you may block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses you have blacklisted shall appear inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any of them and enable it to access your website again. You are able to block entire IP ranges through the tool as well - you just 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 Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with no more thanseveral clicks and you will not have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first website hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type 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 have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
