One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You can even 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 within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our Linux hosting packages offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is a breeze to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks too, so if you type in 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. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, will permit you to solve the issue with unwanted traffic very efficiently. It incorporates an IP blocking tool where you could add IP addresses with just several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to select the one you need and then input the IP address that needs to be blocked. If you wish to block an entire range, a C-class network for example, you just need to type in the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you shall not have to input them by hand. Because all the IPs you add in this section shall be listed, you may effortlessly unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
