One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many web 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 any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Hosting
If you have a hosting
account with our company and you want to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a really simple interface, you'll be able to restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to do this is to log in to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't have to do anything complicated if you wish to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with only a click.
