One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, 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. That way, you will also prevent the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a very simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete that is to log inside to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You won't have to do anything complicated if you'd like to block a whole network - you will just need 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 will be listed in the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with only a click.
