One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of 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 shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our Linux shared web hosting plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do so with just a couple of clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.

As soon as you go to the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains you have added within the Hosted Domains section.
