One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our Linux shared web hosting packages include an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with simply a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplya few mouse clicks and you won't have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
