Discover more about IP blocking, why it can be so advantageous and when to use it.
One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud web hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you only need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
