One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud website hosting accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with simply a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
