One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably 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 prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting services provide an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do so 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 easy to use. Once you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the undesirable traffic to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us, since we provide a really easy-to-use tool to do that, that is provided with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you haven't dealt with this kind of issues in the past, you won't have any difficulties, considering that our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is select the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type in the IP inside the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally simple.
