Find out more about IP blocking, what it really indicates and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your websites 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 produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all web hosting
accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with several clicks. No coding skills are needed, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, you just need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts include a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral clicks and you will not have any issues to do that even if that is your first web hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
