Discover more about IP blocking, exactly what it means and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared hosting
accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with only a few clicks. No coding skills are required, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
