One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. 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 state. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses at some point, you are able to leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we have included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a few clicks, you shall be able to block individual IPs or entire ranges, if needed. All you'll have to do is pick out any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, decide if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder which is part of the Internet site, and then enter the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you just have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address with regards to the size of the network that you want to block. Each of the addresses that you've restricted shall be listed within the exact same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you shall be able to do it with simply a mouse click anytime.
