One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole country. You can even 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 in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with a few clicks. No coding skills are needed, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from to, you just have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
