One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that mustn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, 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. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all cloud hosting
accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you basically need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
