One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses at some point, you could take advantage of the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With several mouse clicks, you will be able to block particular IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you'll have to do is choose any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the site, and then type in the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you only need to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address based on the size of the network which you want to block. All the addresses which you have restricted will be listed inside the very same section and if you would like to whitelist any one of them, you will be able to do it with a click whenever you want.
