One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with only a couple of clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few mouse clicks and you shall not have any issues to accomplish that even if that's your first website hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not type in anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
