Learn more about IP blocking, why it could be so advantageous and when to employ it.
One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all web hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with simply a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range also. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168, you simply have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
