One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet 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 numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our Linux hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with simply a couple of clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. Once you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you will just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks as well, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with onlyseveral mouse clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to do that even if this is your first web hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
