One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet 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 large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting
account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. By using a really simple interface, you could restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not have to do anything difficult if you wish to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. All blocked IPs will be listed within the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a click.
