One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot 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 created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud web hosting accounts. It shall enable you to block addresses with a few clicks. No coding skills are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be performed 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 just need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
