One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our web hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with a few clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type the IP address that should be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to block one or a number of IP addresses eventually, you can leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we have provided with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block individual IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you will have to do is pick out any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, select if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder which is part of the site, and then enter the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address with regards to the size of the network you want to block. Each of the addresses which you have restricted will be listed inside the same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you'll be able to do it with a mouse click whenever you want.
