One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting include 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 just a few clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you need to block one or several IP addresses at some point, you may benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several mouse clicks, you shall be able to block certain IPs or entire ranges, if required. All you will need to do is pick any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the website, and then enter the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you just need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address depending on the size of the network you want to block. All the addresses that you have restricted will be listed within the very same section and if you would like to whitelist any of them, you will be able to do it with only a click anytime.
