One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address.

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to block one or numerous IP addresses sooner or later, you may take advantage of the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address in accordance with the size of the network which you want to block. All of the addresses that you've restricted will be listed inside the very same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you shall be able to do it with only a click anytime.
