One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, as you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
