One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, 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 if you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you will also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range too. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to block one or several IP addresses sooner or later, you can leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we have supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With simply several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block certain IPs or entire ranges, if necessary. All you will have to do is choose any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, decide if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the Internet site, and then type in the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you just need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address based on the size of the network that you want to block. All of the addresses you have restricted shall be listed in the very same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you will be able to do it with only a mouse click whenever you want.
