One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Hosting
If you have a hosting
account with our company and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. 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 takes to perform that is to log in to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't need to do anything complicated if you'd like to block an entire 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 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same exact section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with only a click.
