Learn more about IP blocking, why it could be so useful and when to use it.
One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting
account with our company and you want to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a pretty simple interface, you can stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log in to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You'll not need to do anything difficult if you would like to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11. All blocked IPs will be listed in the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
