One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many 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 suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete that is to log in to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You shall not need to do anything difficult if you want to block a whole network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with only a click.
