One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a very simple interface, you'll be able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not need to do anything challenging if you wish 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 will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a click.

As you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is just as simple.
