One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our Linux shared web hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a click from the same section.
