Discover more about IP blocking, exactly what it means and how and when it’s best to use it.
One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you detect 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 a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud web hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, due to the fact that you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you simply have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
