One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the prospect of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our web hosting 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 simply a couple of clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is super easy to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block entire networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a click from the same section.
