One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared website hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with only a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick 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 that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from to, you just have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
