One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Hosting
If you have a hosting
account with us and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a rather simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log inside to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You won't have to do anything difficult if you want to block a whole network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the exact same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
