One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud web hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding skills are needed, because you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
