One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting account with us and you want to block one or several IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a very simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log in to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You simply won't have to do anything difficult if you'd like to block a whole network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the entire range from to All blocked IPs will be listed in the same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with no more thana couple of clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if that is your first website hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
