One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that's integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a pretty simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log within to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You will not have to do anything complicated if you want to block a whole network - you'll just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from to All blocked IPs will be listed within the same section, so you will be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
