Find out about IP blocking, what it indicates and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet 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 a large number of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the prospect of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
