One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many 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 many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting include an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, it shall be able to do so with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks too, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses sooner or later, you may leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With several clicks, you'll be able to block certain IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you will have to do is select any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking needs to be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the site, and then type in the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you just need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address depending on the size of the network which you want to block. All of the addresses that you have restricted shall be listed in the very same section and if you wish to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with only a click anytime.
