One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with simply several mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, since you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
