Learn more about IP blocking, why it can be so useful and when to employ it.
One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting
account with our company and you wish to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP. By using a rather simple interface, you are able to restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log inside to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to select a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything challenging 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 entire range from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. All blocked IPs will be listed in the exact same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a click.
