One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud services include an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with only a few mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and enter the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with no more thana few mouse clicks and you will not have any problems to do that even if that's your first hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything within the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
