One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, it shall be able to do this with only several mouse clicks.

If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with justa few mouse clicks and you will not have any issues to achieve that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will just need to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address inside a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not type in anything in the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
