One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those 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 an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many Internet 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 cases, the traffic is almost certainly 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. That way, you will also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our Linux cloud plans include an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with only a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's very simple to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 from accessing your sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
