Find out more on IP blocking, exactly what it means and just how and when it’s best to use it.
One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud hosting
accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with only several clicks. No coding abilities are needed, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range also. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you simply 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 whole networks from accessing your sites with justa few clicks and you won't have any problems to achieve that even if that's your first website hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just have to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
