One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud web hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you just have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
