One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting feature an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. Once you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with our semi-dedicated servers, will allow you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It features an IP blocking tool where you can add IP addresses with just a few clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just have to select the one you need and then type in the IP address that should be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you just need to input the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you'll not have to enter them by hand. Considering that all the IPs which you add in this section shall be listed, you may quickly unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
