One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with only a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
