One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel.

You'll not have to do anything complicated if you would 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 shall block the full range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed in the same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with justa couple of clicks and you will not have any issues to do that even if this is your first hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything in the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
