One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range also. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
